BBC World seeks permission from the government to carry advertisements in India

This is what i call a farce on the part of the government. Without clearly specifying the guidelines as to in which case a foreign news channel will b allowed to carry advts, the government is following a totally non-transparent method of granting permission, what it calls in a 'case by case basis', what former Chief Vigilance Commissioner N Vittal used to cal on a 'suitcase by suitcase basis'. Why governments love confusion so much!
