Let us tell you that Rahul Gandhi’s tweet comes after the Union Ministry of Electronics and IT sent its final notice to Twitter for non-compliance of new IT rules. In the notice sent by the ministry, it has been said that in view of non-compliance of rules by Twitter Inc. which came into force on May 26, 2021, results in compliance. The government has warned Twitter that non-compliance with the rules made by the Government of India will have consequences.
The central government has sent a final notice to Twitter on the new IT rules. It has been said in this notice that, if Twitter does not follow the new rules, then in the coming days it will have to face the consequences under the IT Act and other laws of India. As of now, there has been no response from Twitter on this. In fact, the Government of India, while announcing the new IT rules on February 25, said that any social media platform whose users are more than 50 lakhs, it is mandatory for them to appoint a grievance officer in India.
After this announcement, the central government gave Twitter 3 months. Some time ago, in view of this rule, Twitter told the Delhi High Court that, keeping in mind the new IT rules in India, it has appointed a Grievance Officer on 28 May. But the government was not satisfied with this decision of Twitter, after which the IT Ministry sent the first notice to Twitter on 26 May 2021, the second on 28 May and the third notice on 2 June. But now IT has warned by sending a final notice to Twitter. Actually, the nodal officer appointed by Twitter was not an employee of Twitter. Not only this, Twitter told its address of the law firm’s office, which is considered illegal as per the rules.
In the final notice sent by IT, it was written that, as a goodwill gesture, we are giving Twitter one last chance to comply with the new IT rules made in India. Notwithstanding this, if Twitter does not comply with these rules, the exemption from liability under IT Act Article 79 will be withdrawn and Twitter should be ready to face the legal consequences.
