Stating that the government has sent an advisory, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore underlined that such advisories are regularly sent by the Centre on unauthorised channels.
"We also monitor whenever such news comes up. It is our work to ask for report about such incidents. The action is being taken," he said.
Mr Rathore said it is the responsibility of the local administration to monitor unauthorised channels in their area and they have the right to take action against them.
The minister was responding to reports that over 50 Saudi and Pakistani channels besides Zakir Naik's banned Peace TV and others indulging in "anti-India" propaganda were allegedly running without necessary clearances via private cable networks in Kashmir.
