(3/2/2012)

The Bali office of the National Broadcast Commission (KPI) has reminded cable television operators in Bali to suspend all transmissions for a 24-hour period from 6:00 a.m. Friday, March 23, 2012 until 6:00 a.m. the following morning in deference to Bali’s absolute day of silence Nyepi.

The KPI has complained that in the past TV Cable operators have largely ignored their requests to suspend all broadcasts to Bali in keeping with proscription of activities and noise during the 24-hour period of mandatory silence.

The chairman of KPI Bali, Komang Suarsana, said that in addition to the refusal of cable operators to follow instructions issued by the KPI, broadcasters have generally been steadfast in refusing to obtain broadcast permits from the KPI, making any efforts at enforcement extremely problematic.

“It’s hard for us to monitor cable TV because of the variety of methods used. There are those that rebroadcast existing programs and others who use cables to broadcast VCDs to neighboring homes. We have no data on these transmission but know such operations do exists based on complaints received from various sources,” explained Suarsana.

The KPI-Bali has written to all formal broadcast and cable operators in Bali ordering the cessation of broadcasts for the entire 24-hour period.

The four guiding principles set down for celebrating the Bali-Hindu New Year – Catur Berata Penyepian stipulate:

  • Amati Geni: Prohibiting the lighting of fires, the use of lighting or the satisfaction of pleasurable human appetites.
  • Amati Karya: Prohibiting all forms of physical work other than those dedicated to spiritual cleansing and renewal.
  • Amati Lelungan: Prohibiting movement or travel; requiring people to stay within their residences.
  • Amati Lelangunan: Prohibiting all forms of entertainment, recreations or general merrymaking.
