However, the central government has accused the company of not removing such posts from Twitter.
If the Twitter company continues to be negligent, govt. will take action according to technical act 69A.
According to the act, the government has warned twitter, 7 years of jail and several million rupees fine will be imposed.
The Government has insisted that Facebook and WhatsApp shall not involve in political activities.
“The government is engaged in bringing changes in the amendment to bring social network companies under Indian law.
According to the amendments, any online company with more than 50 million users in India is required to have a permanent office in India.
If any information is requested to the concerned company by the government on the legal order, it should be answered within 72 hours.
This will be done when the information is needed in the security or cyber cases of the country” said Union Minister Ravishankar Prasad.
