28 June 2017. The Election Commission announced it would reveal the schedule for the vice-presidential elections at a press conference the next morning. Naturally, every major TV channel covered it, beaming the news to millions of viewers. Interestingly, none of them were allowed a camera in the room.

28 September 2018. Again, another major government event. This time held by the ministry of defence, celebrating the second anniversary of a series of widely publicised military strikes by the Indian Army against Pakistan. Once again, every major network covered the event. But not a single one was allowed to bring a camera inside.
