Govt issues one last notice to Twitter to comply with new IT rules
Government has issued a notice to twitter giving it one last chance to immediately comply with the new IT rules. Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology warned that failure to adhere to the norms will lead to the platform losing exemption from liability under the IT Act.
The ministry said that Twitter’s refusal to comply with the rules demonstrated the microblogging site’s lack of commitment and efforts towards providing a safe experience for the people of India on its platform.
Government said, despite being operational in India for more than a decade, it is beyond belief that Twitter Inc has doggedly refused to create mechanism that will enable the people of India to resolve their issues on the platform in a timely and transparent manner and through fair processes, by India based, clearly identified resources.
