To enable fair, cooperative, non-litigious regulation by PEMRA, Pakistan Broadcasters’ Association, Cable TV Operators Association, Pakistan Advertisers’ Society, and Advertising Association of Pakistan need to review their own existing policies and practices. This should ensure compliance by their members of their respective obligations to render public service duties and provide public interest content. Media should demonstrate complete transparency in rates charged for advertising, in time devoted to commercial content and programming content, and in fulfilling terms and conditions of licenses and other aspects of their social responsibilities.
