Government has sent a final notice to Twitter for compliance with the new IT rules. New intermediary guideline rules have become effective from May 26 and it has been more than a week but Twitter has refused to comply with the provisions of these rules, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) said in a notification.
Even after expiry of 3-month period given to social media intermediaries for compliance, Twitter is yet to appoint India based Chief Compliance Officer, Nodal Contact Person & Grievance Officer, the notification said.
Seeing this delaying attitude of Twitter, it was resolved to send a final and firm communication to Twitter asking them to comply immediately with these requirements failing which resultant consequences as enjoined in the law shall follow, it added.
