The Supreme Court has ruled that online media do not need to renew their registration every year. 1

The Supreme Court has ordered that the requirement of annual renewal of online media be abolished.

On Tuesday, a division bench of justices Deepak Kumar Karki and Sushmalata Mathema issued an order to overturn the provision that online media must be renewed annually.

The provisions stipulated in clause 6 of the Online Media Operation Directive have been scrapped by an apex court order, as they were found to be against the spirit of the constitution regarding freedom of speech and the press.

The Supreme Court, after hearing a writ petition filed by Leelanath Ghimire and Bishnu Kumar Giri, revoked the clause of the online media directive that specified that online media services could be shut down if they were not renewed on a yearly basis.
