IFF's Statement on the notified IT Rules Amendment, 2022

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (“MeitY”) has notified the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Amendment Rules, 2022 (hereinafter, “IT Amendment Rules, 2022”). As a result, the IT Rules, 2022, will retain several of the detrimental amendments proposed by MeitY on June 06, 2022, under the draft amendments to the Information Technology (Guidelines for Intermediaries and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021. This will unarguably cause injury to the digital rights of every Indian social media user.
