INS sends notice of disaccreditation to 22 agencies for not clearing outstanding dues
The Indian Newspaper Society (INS) has taken steps in the case of non-payment of dues by various accredited agencies as well as by the Bureau of Outreach and Communication (formerly DAVP).
In a circular issued to its member publications, the INS said that it has been brought to the notice of the Society that there is delay in releasing payment by the Bureau of Outreach and Communication and that huge outstanding dues have been accumulated against the same.
It further said considering the situation, INS would be taking up the matter with the DAVP/ BOC and asked its member publications to provide year-wise information about outstanding dues of their publication to enable the Society to proceed further in the matter.
In another notice issued, the INS listed the names of 22 accredited agencies for their unsatisfactory payment position and for not complying with the Accreditation Rules. The INS issued Notice of Disaccreditation on these 22 agencies for the same w.e.f. October 22, 2020.
The INS asked its member publications not to accord credit facility to these 22 agencies during the Notice period, while making all efforts to realise their unpaid dues. The Society also cautioned its members that these 22 mentioned agencies could release ads routed through other accredited agencies.
