HC Deb 24 June 1935 vol 303 c815W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India who is the responsible authority dealing with the censorship of films for publication in India?


Censorship of films in India is under the control of local governments, who, in accordance with the provisions of the Cinematograph Act of 1918, may be empowered to set up censorship boards. Five such boards are now in existence at Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, Lahore and Rangoon.
