The time has come to reform Censor Board of India or scrap the board and adopt the age rating system, the board should just watch the movie and give the rating suitable for below 13, below 18, above 18 like this.

No cuts, no suggestion nothing doing, watch the movie give the rating to movie that’s all. this will stop corruption also which is rampant.
