NEW DELHI: TV viewing need not be sanitised completely. The government is likely to review the ban on adult films on television and give those with explicit language and material a late night time slot. 

A suggestion to this effect has been mooted by Censor Board chief Sharmila Tagore, and information and broadcasting minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi has said the government is ready to consider it. "We will examine the proposal. I have not received any such proposal so far," he said. 

In an interview to a TV channel, Tagore had said she she was opposed to the blanket ban on showing adult films on TV and said there should be a specified time slot for telecasting such movies. "A specified time is necessary for adult viewing. That would be a practical and reasonable solution," she said. 

Tagore said the board was planning to go back to the I&B ministry and ask it for a review of the decision to ban adult movies on TV. 

She said the films could be safely shown between 11 pm and 4 am and also revealed that the I&B ministry was thinking of creating an adult viewing time zone on TV. 

In the interview, Tagore also suggested that instead of censoring movies, A+ or X rating could be given to those meant for adult audiences.
