The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) said that Twitter''s refusal to comply with the rules demonstrated the microblogging site''s "lack of commitment and efforts towards providing a safe experience for the people of India on its platform".
"Despite being operational in India for more than a decade, it is beyond belief that Twitter Inc has doggedly refused to create mechanism that will enable the people of India to resolve their issues on the platform in a timely and transparent manner and through fair processes, by India based, clearly identified resources," the IT ministry said.
The ministry said that though with effect from May 26, 2021, "consequences follow" given Twitter''s non-compliance with rules "however, as a gesture of goodwill, Twitter Inc is hereby given one last notice to immediately comply with the rules, failing which the exemption from liability available...shall stand withdrawn and Twitter shall be liable for consequences as per the IT Act and other penal laws of India."
The notice, however, did not given a specific deadline to comply with the rules. PTI MBI ANZ MKJ
