Description
It happened to the author to complete the course of P.G. Diploma in Journalism and Mass Communication in 1997 June. In 2001 June, the author, along with a friend, Moturi Venkateswara Rao (Journalist) visited the Rachana Journalist College in Hyderabad and interacted with the then Principal, Dr., Govindaraju Chandradhar. Then a thought of writing a book on 'Media Law' flashed and started to collect some study material. But it was not materialised as he was involved in writing books for various subjects of Law Courses. Suddenly  Shri Sunil Gogia, M/s. Asia Law House, Hyderabad put a proposal of writing a text book on Media Law as there were not many text books on that subject. At the same time, the author attended the two-day international Seminar on "Changing Face of India Media: What Needs to be done?" on March 21-22, 2012 at Centre for Economic and Social Studies, Hyderabad. In that Seminar, many delegates expressed the need of books on Media Laws'.
