The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology gave these companies to follow the new rules.  In such a situation, if Facebook, Twitter, Instagram do not follow these rules then they will be closed.



If we tell you that Facebook, Twitter, Instagram will be closed today, what will be your reaction?  Please tell me that this is true.  Today is May 25 and today is the end of the three months that the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology gave these companies to follow the new rules.  In such a situation, if Facebook, Twitter, Instagram do not follow these rules then they will be closed.

Let us tell you that on February 25, 2021, on behalf of the Ministry of Electronics and IT, the Government of India gave a time of 3 months.  In this time, instructions were given to regulate digital content.  Compliance officers, nodal officers etc. were also asked to be appointed for this.  The central government said that whoever is appointed should have jurisdiction in India.  It was also said that social media platforms have to monitor objectionable content, compliance reports and remove objectionable content.


 It was also told to social media platforms that if any complaint is received under the new rules, then it will have to accept it within 24 hours.  Along with this, 15 days of indoor action will also have to be done.  At the same time, if action is not taken, then the reason will have to be given.

 There were also some platforms that asked for a time of 6 months regarding these rules.  Some of them even said that they have not received instructions from their headquarters which is based in the US.

Koo followed the rules:

 As of now, no other platform except Koo has followed the new guidelines.  Koo said in a statement, "Koo's privacy policy reflects the requirements of the rules applicable to the Terms of Use and Community Guidelines. In addition, Koo has supported an Indian resident Chief Compliance Officer, Nodal Officer and Grievance officer.  Diligence and grievance have implemented redressal mechanisms. "

In the event of the expiry of the deadline by other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, the government can take criminal action against them.

What is the new digital ethics code:

 With the new digital ethics code, the government aims to create a progressive institutional mechanism.  Union IT and Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had said that streaming services have been designed to prevent misuse and disclose the source of misinformation and remove it within 24 hours.
