New Delhi : The most popular show on Sony TV, Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is known for its credibility as far as the question and answers appearing in the show as the producers of the show have a highly talented research team working behind the show to ensure a very high standard. However, there is breach in its quality standards which was pointed out recently by Civil Surgeon to Broadcast Content Complaints Council (BCCC).
The BCCC has asked the broadcaster of the show Sony TV to run an apology scroll on 30th December between 8.30pm and 9.30pm for ‘disseminating wrong stats’ in one of the episodes of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
The TV ombudsman received a complaint from a civil surgeon from Jhajjar district in Haryana, saying that in the episodes telecast on August 19th and 20th, the show fudged the stats. A contestant from the Madana village of Jhajjar district was on the hot seat, and during the video presentation on the life of the man, it was mentioned that the sex ratio in the district was 378 females to 1,000 males.
However, according to the 2011 census, the figures are 694 females to 1,000 males. The complaint was taken up in the December 17 meeting of the Council in Mumbai and the channel was asked to run an apology scroll and the correct data between 8.30pm and 9.30pm, the time at which KBC was telecast. Justice Mukul Mudgal, chairman, BCCC, confirmed the news.
