Will social media be banned in India?

India proposed strict policies in terms of social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, twitter, WhatsApp etc. The rule was declared in February 2021 and social media platforms were given three months to comply. The deadline ended on 25th May 2021 and none of it has complied with the new policy.

According to reports, the spokesperson of Facebook said they would cooperate with the new policies but they are looking forward towards more support from the Indian government and need six months of extended time.

However users rest assured as it won’t be banned in India. The latest IT rules clearly mentioned that they may go through legal proceedings but they will not be banned in India. The new IT rules includes a clause that requires social media platforms to locate the first originator of the information if required.

The government stated that the new guidelines are to prevent abuse, misuse of social media platform and offers user a forum for grievances redressal.
