What are the new IT Rules of 2021?

In our country (India) the draft Guideline has been released for social media, i.e. what you can and cannot do on social media is stated in these rules.

Our country's Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that a new rule called IT Rules 2021 (Information Technology IntermediaryGuidalines and digital media ethics code) is about to be issued in our country.

We will let you know in the next part of the post when these new IT Rules 2021 will come into force but first let us tell you which ministry is to administer these rules. So the Ministry of Electronics and IT is going to manage the IT Rules 2021.

Now let's talk about who these IT Rules 2021 will apply to.

So these new rules will apply to the big social media companies in our country. These rules do not apply to startup companies. (Now the big social media companies are the companies that have a bigger user base.)
