Information Technology rules: MeitY to organise public consultation

Earlier this month, the Information Technology ministry had republished a draft of proposed changes to the country’s technology and social media regulations, which it had said would aim at providing “more effective grievance redressal,” and plug “infirmities and gaps’ in the existing regulations

A public consultation of the proposed changes to the Information Technology Rules of 2021 will be organised by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) on June 23 from 3 PM, a tweet from the ministry said.

The consultation is likely to be attended by representatives of social media intermediaries, tech policy and other business advocacy groups, cyber-security experts and privacy activists.

Earlier this month, the Information Technology ministry had republished a draft of proposed changes to the country’s technology and social media regulations, which it had said would aim at providing “more effective grievance redressal,” and plug “infirmities and gaps’ in the existing regulations.

The revised notification, which had come a week after a similar draft had been pulled down, would address challenges thrown up by the expanding digital ecosystem as well as gaps in the current regulations especially, “vis-a-vis Big Tech platform”, the ministry had said.

The ministry had then given a time of 30 days to all stakeholders to submit their views on the draft of the proposed amendments and said that a date and time for a formal public consultation would also be announced in due course of time.
