Government allows walk-in Vaccination for 18-44 age group.
We thank @PMOIndia @MoHFW_INDIA and @AyushmanNHA for listening to the the grievances raised by @SFLCin regarding #COVIDVaccination.
#DigitalDefenders #VaccinationDrive #Covid_19 #CowinPortal #Corona
Beneficiaries aged 18 years and above can now schedule appointments online or walk-in to Government vaccination centres for Vaccination.
. @SFLCin had written letters to @PMOIndia @MoHFW_INDIA @AyushmanNHA highlighting the urgent need to open up walk-in registrations for 18-44 age group.
The letter highlighted that at a time when entire country is grappling with COVID-19, the objective of the government should be to ensure maximum vaccination.
Like the vaccination programmes for diseases like polio, the focus should be to not just have vaccination centres but also to reach out to the population that will have difficulty in reaching the centres like the differently abled and the aged.
The objective of the #vaccination programme should be to include everyone. Any policies that result in exclusion of citizens should be changed.
We hope that the other grievances raised by people are also addressed by the government soon.
We have been the defenders of your #DigitalRights since 2010, all because of your support and donations.

Safe Harbour is not a certificate or a stamp that is issued by the government. It is an inherent protection available to #intermediaries.
#ITRules #TwitterIndia #SocialMedia
#Twitter has approximately 1.75 crore users in India. The Safe harbour protection is an inherent protection granted to intermediaries which is a defense it can take against imposition of liability for acts done by third parties.
Such a defense is taken at the time of ascertainment and quantification of liability which would be done before a court of law and not by the government.

@Twitter is an intermediary under Section 2(w) of the IT Act. This status cannot be taken away by the Government.
#ITrules2021 #TwitterIndia #SocialMedia
Intermediaries get a safe harbor protection under Section 79. This is conditional on them not modifying the content or initiating the transmission or selecting the receiver of the transmission.
It is also reliant on intermediaries discharging the due diligence requirements under the Act and under the Intermediary Guidelines Rules, 2021.

@WhatsApp has challenged the traceability provision in the Delhi High Court stating it is unconstitutional and against the fundamental Right to #Privacy as enshrined in Justice K.S. Puttaswamy vs UOI (2017).

In order to follow the traceability provision i.e. Rule 4(2), WhatsApp would have to break end-to-end encryption for its users thereby undermining privacy of messages to its users.
