      No monitoring is being done by high level Committee in this regard. The existing Television Rating Points (TRP) guidelines has provisions like methodology for audience measurement, panel selection, viewing platform secrecy and privacy, data analysis, transparency and complaint redressal mechanism etc. which are essentially required for a robust, transparent and accountable rating system in India. Notwithstanding, the existing provisions in the guidelines and processes put in place by BARC, based on the Report of the Committee headed by CEO, Prasar Bharati along with recommendations of TRAI, the matter could be appropriately considered for further interventions, if required.
