In the months of April and May, a total of five industries objected and sent a notice to the Union Government. These organisations request the government to review the execution and implementation of new IT regulations. The CII, FICCI, US India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF), and the US India Business Council are among these organisations (USIBC). These businesses also stated that the criminal liability imposed on intermediaries can have a significant impact on the ease with which they conduct business.
These businesses sent a letter to Ravi Shankar Prasad, the Minister of IT, and Ajay Prakash Sawhney (Secretary). Furthermore, these industries objected and requested that the ministers prolong the time for social media firms to execute the new requirements.
Asocham’s letter dated April 21 refers to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. However, this resulted in significant changes in the way intermediaries function. Furthermore, the USIBC indicated that the new guidelines require further consideration. Despite this, the CII and FICCI have pushed the government to remove the clause of criminal culpability. The USISPF, on the other hand, requested a six-month extension to adopt new IT standards.
