In this episode of the Perspective Prog. based on ‘Social Media & Law of Land’. Twitter may lose intermediary status, if it does not comply with all government orders by 4th July, i.e. Monday. As per news reports, a notice was issued on 27th June to the company to comply with all past orders issued by the govt. Sources in the govt have been quoted as saying that multiple notices were issued to the social media giant last month, but it did not comply with them. This is the final notice and 4th July is the deadline for compliance. To ensure that social media companies comply with Indian laws, the government is also working towards bringing an amendment in the IT Rules of 2021, under which it is considering setting up appellate committees which will have the power to overrule decisions taken by the company’s grievance cell, in line with the law of the country. To understand further about the proposed amendment… how effective will it be in addressing grievances in a fair & equitable manner and most importantly, what more needs to be done to ensure social media giants follow Indian rules?
