Google reports that it will comply with India’s social media regulations


The news in the Indian press stated that Google respects India’s legislative processes and aims to comply with the country’s new digital rules.

In the report, it was noted that Google will fight illegal content effectively and fairly in accordance with the laws of the country.

It was shared that the decision in question will also be valid for the video sharing site Youtube, owned by Google.

Social media platform Facebook also announced during the day that it will comply with India’s regulations.

While the new social media regulation in India was adopted in February, social media companies are required to have representatives in the country, report the source of “harmful content” when requested, and remove it.

The New Delhi administration requested that some accounts be closed and some content was blocked due to the farmer protests that turned into mass actions across the country from social media companies and criticism of the management of the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic.
