The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (“MeitY”) published a notification establishing three Grievance Appellate Committee(s) (“GAC”) on January 27, 2023 under Rule 3A of the notified Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Amendment Rules, 2022 (“IT Amendment Rules, 2022”). We have previously covered our concerns with the executive overreach and legal uncertainty inherent in this provision. April 01, 2023, marks one month of the GAC’s functioning. We wrote to the Chairpersons of the three Committees, seeking clarification about the GAC’s establishment and functioning.
