If you don't believe, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram will be shut down in India in 2 days

Un-social media curb ?: If you don't believe, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram will be shut down in India in 2 days

 While the toolkit issue is currently raging in India, the Indian government's new law on social media ethics will come into force in two days.  Ignoring the new IT law as soon as the law is enacted could hit social media companies hard.  However, even after a period of three months, social media companies like Facebook-Twitter or Instagram have shown no interest in following the rules.  The question is whether the Indian government will give these companies more time to close Facebook-Twitter-Instagram in India in two days.



 What is the new social media law?

 In fact, on February 25, 2021, the Ministry of Electronics and IT of the Government of India announced the implementation of the Social Media or Digital Media Ethics Code.  The new law covers social media, digital platforms or OTT to ban the spread of any kind of offensive or misleading content.  The government also gave all social media platforms as well as companies three months to implement it.

 The deadline is May 25, the law will come into force on May 26

 The law, enacted to regulate digital media or social platforms, will take effect on May 26.  All digital or social media was given three months to do so, ending on May 25.

 In the New Testament this is indispensable to all

 1 - Officers and Contact Addresses in India: For the most important social media intermediaries a) a Chief Operating Officer (b) a nodal contact person (c) a local grievance officer.  All these should be employees living in India.

 2 - It is mandatory for social media intermediaries to have an office in India, which should be published on a website or mobile application or both.

 3- Grievance Redressal: Under the rules, intermediaries should be published on the website, mobile application or both with priority - (a) Name of the Complaint Officer and Contact Details (b) Procedure for making a complaint.  The Complaints Officer must report the complaint within 24 hours.  It has to be disposed of in 15 days.

 4- Monitoring of Harmful Content: Social media companies will use their technology to ensure that tools to remove rape, child violence, etc. are placed on their websites.

 The new law covers social media, digital platforms or OTT to ban the spread of any kind of offensive or misleading content.

 Only social media company Koo enforced the rules

 Indian social media company Koo has complied with all the guidelines in compliance with the new digital laws.

 Some companies asked for six months

 Several social media platforms have asked for six more months.  While the ministry said this was easy to implement in three months.  Facebook, Twitter and Instagram said the company was awaiting directions as its headquarters were abroad.

 Arbitrary social platforms

 All social platforms are exempt under Section 79 of the IT Act, as they display third party data but they create their own standards by claiming protection and ignoring Indian laws.  These social media platforms promote posts or fake posts that hurt the dignity of women or promote terrorism.  While many other posts are deleted or modified and there are no criteria for that.  This arbitrariness can be curbed after May 26.
