There are crores of users of many social media platforms Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter and Instagram in the country. In such a situation, what will happen if these users know that all these platforms are getting banned from today. In fact, the deadline to approve the new guidelines of the Central Government has ended on 25 May. At the same time, social media platforms that do not implement the new Intermediate Guidelines of the Center can be banned in India.
Twitter asked for time
At the same time, before the deadline of this guideline is over, the social media giant Facebook has said in its statement that it respects the new guideline of the government and is working to implement it. Facebook has also said that discussions are underway with its government to implement the new guideline. On the other hand, microblogging site Twitter has sought six months from the Government of India to implement the new guideline. At the same time, Koo App called Indian Twitter has implemented the government’s guideline.
May take action
Explain that in February this year, the central government had issued new guidelines for social media platforms. The Center had given three months to implement this guideline. But platforms other than Koo App have not implemented it. In such a situation, action can be taken against social media platforms that do not implement the new guidelines.
What is the new guideline
According to the new guidelines released by the central government, social media platforms will have to appoint a nodal officer, resident grievance officer in India, who will be in India. This officer will have to settle the complaints received against the OTT content within 15 days. Apart from this, under the new guidelines, social media platforms will have to issue a monthly report, in which information about complaints and their disposal will have to be given. Not only this, which posts and content were removed and what was the reason for this, we also have to tell about this. All social media platforms should have a physical address in India, which should be registered on the company’s mobile app and website.
Complaint will be registered in 24 hours
Under the new guideline, objectionable content will have to be removed from the internet media within 24 hours of the complaint. Along with this, companies have to have a grievance redressal mechanism and a grievance redressal officer. The complaint will be registered in 24 hours and will be redressed in 15 days.
