CBFC which functions under the Information and Broadcasting Ministry does not have the mandate to regulate content on video-streaming platforms, and its role is restricted to films that are released in theatres and television satellite channels. Whereas content on OTT platforms is, in fact, not regulated by any specific body. The platforms are still in the process of finalising a self-regulatory code for the content they stream, despite a rift in the industry.
