Very important information has come to the fore for people using social media. Soon people using platforms like Google, Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter can see a big change. This is because the government is preparing to tighten the noose on social media. For this, major changes can be made in the IT rules soon.
In this regard, the government has also held a big consultation meeting on Thursday, in which the rules of social media will be discussed. Actually, the government is trying to implement Indian laws to make social media companies accountable. According to a report by Zee Business, if anyone makes an objectionable post on social media, then the company will be liable.
Also, preparations are being made to give more rights to the users, because many times it happens that users complain about the content, but companies ignore it.
What are the new rules of the government
If someone has made an objectionable post on social media, then companies will be responsible for his post. If someone has objected to any content, then all his doubts will have to be cleared within 7 days. Along with this, that post will have to be removed from all platforms within 72 hours. Apart from this, the person who has posted should also be removed from the platform. Along with this, any question related to him will have to be collected during a month. Apart from this, social media companies will have to build data centers in India and appoint officers. At the same time, all the rules of the government will have to be followed.
Bill to be introduced during monsoon session
Preparations are being made to introduce this social media bill in this monsoon session. The government says that this bill is also needed because it has been seen many times that fake news has been spread from social platforms. Therefore, preparations are being made to introduce a bill to curb this.
