New Delhi: The controversy between the Government of India and Twitter over the new rules has not yet ended. Many social media platforms are following Government of India rules, but Twitter has not yet accepted the new rules. Now a petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court on the same issue.
The petition has been filed by advocate Amit Acharya against Twitter, Twitter India, which seeks not to comply with the government's rules within the stipulated time frame. The petition is scheduled to be heard in court on Monday. In fact, according to the new IT rule framed on February 25, the government had made it clear that any social media platform that has more than 5 million followers will have to appoint Resident Grievance Officer.
At the same time, if an attempt is made to tarnish his image by creating a fake account, action should be initiated on the user within 24 hours of his complaint and the complaint should be disposed of in the next 15 days. But Twitter still hasn't done all this until May 25 after the 3-month deadline. The petition has been filed in the court against Twitter as it was mandatory to do under the IT Rule 2021.
