IT ministry to conduct quarterly compliance audits of social media firms

The ministry will verify if the grievances raised to the social media companies are reported correctly to the government and if the action taken by them is in response to the grievances under the rules laid down

The Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) will conduct audits of social media companies once every three months to verify if their compliance is in line with the IT Rules 2021.

The ministry will verify if the grievances raised to the social media companies are reported correctly to the government and if the action taken by them is in response to the grievances under the rules laid down.

At present, social media companies are mandated to disclose their compliance with the IT Rules 2021 every month, including their responses to the grievances filed. The government has proposed to set up an appellate panel that would be able to override the social media companies’ decisions about the takedown or moderation of posts on these platforms.

The government will set up one or more grievance appellate committees to handle the appeals by users against the decisions of the grievance officers appointed by the social media platforms, according to the draft of the proposed amendments to the IT Rules 2021.
