Advisory on Deployment of Accredited Journalist at Events of Government of India

It has been observed that at times non PIB accredited correspondents/ camerapersons are sent by media organizations to cover events attended by functionaries of the Government of India. Due to security reasons it is not possible to facilitate entry of such media persons at the concerned events.

Therefore, it is suggested that media organizations should only send PIB accredited correspondents/ camerapersons for the above mentioned events, except only in exceptional circumstances where PIB accredited correspondents/ camerapersons are not available.
