The Ministry of Information and Technology on Saturday sent a final notice to Twitter for compliance with the new IT rules.
In the notice, the ministry of electronics and information technology (MeitY) said, “it is dismayed to note that your (Twitter’s) responses to the ministry’s letters neither address the clarifications sought by this ministry nor indicate full compliance with the rules.”
It further stated that “it is clear from your responses that till date Twitter has not informed about the details of the chief compliance officer as required under the rules.”
New Intermediary Guideline Rules have become effective from the 26th of May. After the expiry of a three-month period given to social media intermediaries for compliance, Twitter is yet to appoint an India-based Chief Compliance Officer, Nodal Contact Person and Grievance Officer.
