The Questioner asked for a Section under which he can proceed when false news is spread.

FALSE NEWS SECTION.    Not FALSE NEW SECTION.

There's no specific law in India that deals with fake news. Though there are some statuary provisions.

Matrimonial offences, Defamation are those few Sections of Indian Penal Code under which a Complainant must have locus standi.

A Questioner in lawyersclubindia needn't have locus standi whether they post their Queries in FORUM or EXPERTS.

If a false news is spread against a person, only can they prosecute under Section 500 of the IPC vide my first Reply above.

Fake news has a far reaching in our country. From the matter of riots to elections, we see it everytime. However, since free press is a symbol of freedom of speech and expression, no strict regulations are made on it. However, sections 499 &500, IPC is applicable I'm defamatory matters. Other than that, section 153 & 295, IPC can also be evoked in case of hate speech. Press Council Act, 1978, is a statutory body for regulating the spread of fake news.

There is no specific law to deal with fake news. Free publication or broadcast of news in India flows from the fundamental right to freedom of expression as enshrined under Article 19 of the Constitution. However, there are certain legal recourses available for people affected by fake news.

Complaints can be lodged with the News Broadcasters Association (NBA) which represents the private television news and current affairs broadcasters.
