In a first-ever initiative by an Association of private news and current affairs broadcasters in India, and as a measure of self-regulation, the News Broadcasters Association (“NBA”) has constituted and announced the establishment of the “News Broadcasting Standards (Disputes Redressal) Authority” to enforce NBA's Code of Ethics & Broadcasting Standards, which became operational from October 2, 2008.
 
There are models of governance evolved in other countries which have seen an evolution of the electronic media, including the news media, much before it developed in India. The remarkable feature of all these models is “self-governance”, and a monitoring by a "jury of peers".
 
The Nine Member Authority is chaired by Mr. Justice (Retd.) J. S. Verma, former Chief Justice of India and former Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission.
