A draft amendment of the Intermediary Guidelines Rules has been issued by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, ostensibly for dealing with the #FakeNews and #misinformation. We have published a FAQ on the draft amendment.…
The draft Rules remove the safe harbour granted to intermediaries such as WhatsApp, Google, Facebook and your telecom service provider if they do not comply with these Rules.
In order to stay safe themselves, they would have to tell you every month that you are not allowed to post, upload or send content that violates these Rules.
A major point of contention is the requirement for intermediaries to use automated tools to filter content sent / posted by users, and for intermediaries to build a system that can be used to trace who originally sent a message.
Comments are being sought by the Ministry until 15 January 2019. You can read the draft Rules and find out how to email your comments to the Ministry by visiting this page…
