On 22 April, the OTT platform Eros Now has been ordered by the Election Commission of India (ECI) to stop streaming of a five-part series about India’s PM Narendra Modi-- Modi: Journey of a Common Man.

The Commission had also directed to delay the release of the film, Modi’s biopic, and banned BJP-sponsored TV channel, NaMo TV.

ECI started restricting the media content from last month since its campaigning after it was flooded with complaints.  Under India's election rules, content deemed as helping a party's election campaign is not allowed during the "silent" voting phase.

Supreme Court has also directed ECI to act tough on complaints of poll violations by political leaders.
