Mumbai Police Commissioner has made a big charge on 3 news channels. Police Commissioner Parambir Singh said that Republic TV has tampered with television rating points (TRPs). The person whose house was fitted with a rutting meter was paid to watch Republic TV. For this, they were given 400–500 rupees.
According to the Mumbai Police, these channels were increasing the TRP by paying money. According to the Mumbai Police, the owner of two channels has been caught. People connected to Republic TV can also be caught. Bank accounts are being investigated. Only expensive and more advertisements are received through TRP.
The Mumbai Police told that wherever these meters were installed, the people of those houses were given money to install a special channel. Whether you are at home or not. To see or not to watch is to just let the TV play by installing channels. Even those who were illiterate were asked to set up English channels. The police have also caught some of such people. Two people have also been produced in the court.
The Police Commissioner said that action will also be taken against those responsible for the channels. He said that according to the investigation, whoever needs to be called or questioned.
