Social Media Guidelines India: The Central Government on Thursday issued mediation guidelines aimed at curbing social media.

Social Media Guidelines India: It is learned that the Central Government on Thursday announced the latest Information Technology Rules-2021 with mediation guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code aimed at curbing social media. Social media tools like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are likely to face problems with these regulations. Although there is still time for the new regulations to come into force .. there is a heated debate going on across the country on its implications. Because .. the government has brought in clear rules with the aim of knowing who is sending a message (controversial message). However, messaging apps that use end-to-end encryption, such as WhatsApp, Signal, and Telegram, must violate their own security policies if they are to comply with government regulations. In this context do they follow the rules of the center? Or does the center force outrage? Time will tell. However, let’s take a look at what kind of debate is going on across the country on the same topic.

Ministers Prakash Javadekar and Ravi Shankar Prasad pointed out a key point during the announcement of the Information Technology Rules-2021. According to the new law .. If any tweet or message comes from a country other than India, their point is that the relevant app should inform the government in advance. The ministers also clarified that the government should be informed as to who the message was first sent to in India.

A Facebook India spokesperson responded to the terms and guidelines. ‘We welcome the regulations brought by the Central Government to address the most difficult challenges within the Internet. On our platform (Facebook) we abide by all the rules on how people can express their feelings freely and safely. For that reason the Central Government has to thoroughly study the newly released guidelines. We will make a clear statement on this after fully understanding the terms. And we are happy with the comments made by the ministers on the positive contributions that social media has provided to the country. India has a close relationship with Facebook. User safety and security is very important to us. We will continue to strive to play our part in India’s technological development.

This is evident from the guidelines issued by the central government on building building policy, which WhatsApp has strongly opposed in the past. The same has now become a hotly debated topic. Accepting this provision will require WhatsApp to violate their end-to-end encryption terms. That is why he has made these remarks in the past. ‘Building Traibility is an end-to-end encryption policy that undermines WhatsApp’s private policy. This approach makes it vulnerable to serious abuse. However, the privacy protections provided by WhatsApp are strict, ‘a WhatsApp India spokesperson said on a previous occasion.

Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad made key remarks on end-to-end encryption. It was clarified that messaging apps, which are social media tools, do not need to violate end-to-end encryption. Union Minister Ravi Shankar explained that the government wanted to identify the culprits behind an original message, not messages.

Under the new rules, messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter, which are popular social media devices, will now come under the purview of the central government. According to the rules .. ‘Social media intermediaries are required to identify and inform the government the first person to send a message for actions such as identifying, preventing, investigating, prosecuting and punishing crimes related to India’s sovereignty and integrity. Promoting content related to state security, friendly relations with foreign countries, public affairs, rape and sexual offenses is punishable by up to five years in prison, ‘the central government said in the latest guidelines. However, the government has told social media platforms not to divulge the first message or other information, but to alert the source users.

Meanwhile, untrue news is being spread across the country as a social media platform. As a result, there are many serious conflicts and clashes. In this context, governments have in the past issued a number of directives to messaging apps such as WhatsApp to identify the root causes of the spread of fake news. However there are no records of them being followed. Governments have repeatedly warned social media tools on the same subject. Governments have been instructed to identify those who spread false information and to bring about a policy to prevent such propaganda. Not much has changed though.

It remains to be seen whether platforms like WhatsApp will take action to comply with the new rules recently announced by the central government. Analysts believe that if WhatsApp or other messaging apps do not follow the policies of the central government, a ban on their necks will be inevitable.
