Press Council of Pakistan

  1. 1. Challenges for
  2. 2. Online Papers of Pakistan Advertising in KPK Online papers have taken ground around the world but PCP has not yet defined registration procedure and government advertisement rates for e-papers of Pakistan. Government departments in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa must be asked to appoint at least 3 advertising agencies for one or two years. Ad agencies renewal must be conditional to satisfactory performance.
  3. 3. Press in FATA Development Journalism Press Council of Pakistan is committed for development of print media in FATA to form public opinion for democracy and generate employment opportunities for youth of FATA. Positive reporting of development projects in far flung areas must be promoted. PCP is aware of significance of development journalism.
  4. 4. Libel Cases New Name Complaints have been published as news items but we don’t find compensation for affectees of scandals and slanders. Professionals and people want PCP to be renamed as Media Council of Pakistan because existing name confines its role.
  5. 5. Discussion Q: Should there be separate councils for Out Door Media and Online Media in Pakistan? A: No, PCP must rename its name and jurisdiction to cut costs. Q: Is Development Journalism growing in Pakistan? A: PCP must conduct workshops throughout the country for raising awareness about Positive Journalism.
