After a month-long ban, Nepal resumes airing Indian news channels

A month-long ban in Nepal on telecasting of Indian news channels has finally ended. The Nepalese government on Sunday lifted the ban and started airing Indian news channels including India TV.

Sundeep Acharya, Managing Director, Dish Home, Nepal, in a statement said that Nepal has now resumed the telecasting of Indian news channels.

Nepal had banned some of the Indian news channels on July 10 stating that they were “running news against the sovereignty of Nepal.”
