The Election Commission of India (ECI) has also proposed making paid news an electoral offence under the Representa­tion of the People Act to provide a strong deterrent against the malpractic­e.

The poll panel, reminded the CEC, has also proposed a ban on political advertisem­ents in newspapers during the “silence period” between the end of campaign and the day of polling so that the electorate is not influenced and can exercise the franchise with a free mind.
