New Delhi: The central government has announced changes in rules and new guidelines on intermediary accountability for social media companies. In addition, the government has also released new guidelines for OTT platforms. Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar have held a press conference in this regard today.

Ravi Shankar Prasad said that we have seen that people are now using social media to spread violence. He told that social media is divided into two categories, one intermediary and the other significant social media intermediary. Significant social media intermediary has additional duties, we will soon issue notification of user number for this.

A grievance redressal mechanism has to be maintained and the name of the officer handling the grievances will also have to be named. This officer will register the complaint in 24 hours and will resolve it in 15 days. Companies have to remove objectionable posts against women within 24 hours. Companies have to report to the government every month on following the rules. He said that the government has to tell about the first objectionable post.
