The Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF), which represents the television broadcasting industry, soon will be renamed as Indian Broadcasting and Digital Foundation (IBDF) in order to bring under its ambit over-the-top (OTT) players.

The IBF has formed a Digital Media Content Regulatory Council (DMCRC), a self-regulatory body which is formed as per the mandate of the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021.

The industry-led Self-Regulatory Body (SRB) for digital OTT platforms is a second-tier mechanism at the appellate level, similar to Broadcast Content Complaint Council (BCCC).

For the self-regulatory body, Justice (Retd.) Vikramjit Sen has been appointed Chairman. The council also includes national award-winning filmmaker Nikkhil Advani; Deepak Dhar, CEO and founder, Banijay Group; artist, filmmaker and writer Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari; and creative writer and director Tigmanshu Dhulia.
