The process of registering online news portals will start in December, says Information Minister Hasan Mahmud.
The government will take measures against unregistered online news portals, he said.
"The Home Ministry has scrutinized the documents of several hundred online news portals," he said in response to a group of journalists in his office on Monday. The registration will start from next week after examining the related papers.
The government has received a total of 3,595 applications for registration, which were forwarded to the Home Ministry for verification, the minister told a media call at his secretariat office.
