India’s parliament has been told that the country will not permit adult programming into late-night telecasts. India’s Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari told Parliament that there is no intention to alter India’s Programme Code to permit adult material.

India’s 1994 Television Network Rules strictly forbid any “[Denigration of] women through the depiction in any manner of the figure of a women, her form or body or any part thereof in such a way as to have the effect of being indecent, or derogatory to women, or is likely to deprave, corrupt or injure the public morality or morals.”
