Synopsis This book introduces the readers to the need of having freedom of expression, press and the Constitution of India. There has been a detailed discussion in the later part of this book as to why reasonable restrictions on this freedom of Press are required.

Freedom of Speech and Expression

Freedom of speech and expression is an issue, which for various socio-political and economic reasons, has not yet taken the shape it should have acquired. Nonetheless, it is an issue. The more we are aware of it, the better it is for our society to pursue its democratic principles.

Since information and ideas are so important for the growth and survival of a free and democratic society, such a goal cannot be achieved unless every citizen has a fundamental right to give expression to his ideas and opinions. This came to be known as the right to free speech and expression. With the advent of printing technology, freedom of the press was included in the freedom of expression.

The Book titled "Media Legislation and Laws" has been brought out with the main objective of enlightening the readers regarding the latest trends in media legislation and laws with a view to playing regulatory, promotional and planning role of media.

We are sure that this book will be quite useful to the students of Bachelor of Journalism and Mass Communication (BJMC) and of Master of Journalism and Mass Communication (MJMC) besides researchers under going M.Phil. and Ph.D. Degree programmes.
