Election Commission of India says no biopic material which is related to any political or individual entity should be displayed in electronic media including cinema during the operation of model code of conduct.
The commission issued order after examining complaints related to films like NTR Laxmi, PM Narendra Modi, and Udyamma Simham.
The commission further added that any poster or publicity material of such certified content should not be put on display in electronic media.
The commission has also banned the display of posters or any publicity material in print media in the areas where model code of conduct is in force.
The commission has decided to constitute a committee headed by a retired justice of Supreme Court or a retired Chief Justice of any high court to look into any violations in the use of cinematograph material.
