Registration mandatory for online newspapers
Tribune Online Report

The government has made it compulsory for all online newspapers in Bangladesh to be registered by December 15.

According to a PID handout released on Monday, the move has been taken in order to stop “yellow journalism.”

The government handout made it clear that all daily newspapers with online versions, will also have to register afresh for their websites.

The authorities of the news outlets will also have to fill up a prescribed form and file a declaration with the information department.

The form and the proforma of the declaration have been made available on the website of the press information department (www.pressinform.portal.gov.bd).

However, those documents can also be collected from the Protocol division of the information department.

Scrutinising the information and other related documents, the PID will issue registration for the organisations.

For further inquiry, It is requested to make calls to 9514065 or 01715255765.
