BARC India expresses dismay at Republic Network


Mumbai, Oct 18 (IANS): Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) India has slammed news channel Republic network for disclosing confidential communication and misrepresenting the same.

In a statement, BARC India also said that it has not commented on the ongoing investigation and it is providing necessary assistance to the law enforcement agency.

"BARC India has not commented on the ongoing investigation and it is providing necessary assistance to the law enforcement agency," the body said in a statement released on Sunday.

"BARC India is highly disappointed with the actions of the Republic network by disclosing private and confidential communications and misrepresenting the same. BARC India reiterates that it has not commented on the ongoing investigation and without prejudice to BARC India's rights, it expresses its dismay at the actions of the Republic Network," it further read.

The statement comes in response to Republic network claiming that BARC's response in an e-mail exchange with the channel stands in contradiction to the allegations levelled by Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh.

Earlier this month, the Mumbai Police busted a major fraud of manipulating TRP (Television Rating Point) data by at least three TV channels and also made arrests with regard to it.

    Is the BARC, Hansa (contracted company) and Republic TV all involved in the TRP criminal fraud ?

    Highly possible that Hansa and Republic wee trying to falsely frame India TV but it backfired as clever investigative work by the Mumbai Crime branch uncovered the real suspicion with Republic TV. When will mastermind Arnab own up to this ?

    I don't think there r no "any private and confidential" matters if you Corris pond with any news channel thru "email". What is there in that e mail which has upset BARC? Channels have every right to disclose all e mails they receive from any body and that too if that E Mail can sol the false case filed against Channel they have every right to disclose the e mail
