Social Media ban in India: Social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, which are popular in the country, are facing a big problem. On February 25, 2021, the MEITY of the Government of India gave all social companies three months to comply with the new rules. These include giving your officer and contact address in India, the appointment of compliance officers, redressal of grievances, monitoring of objectionable content, compliance reports, and removal of objectionable content.
So far, these companies have not complied with the rules laid down by the government. So now the three social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will be ban in India after 2 days? Such a question has arisen. Meanwhile, it is learned that Koo, a newly launched social media platform, has started following government rules.
These are the Rules of the Government
On February 25, 2021, the Ministry of Electronics and IT of the Government of India had directed the social media companies to comply with certain instructions within 3 months, which were also published in the Gazette of the Government of India. As per the order, social media companies were asked to appoint compliance officers, nodal officers in India. Also, all these officers must be of India. The order also said that social media companies would have to provide information on physical contact persons on their websites or mobile apps.
