New Internet Regulations : Is it an Attack on Privacy of a User?

Under flak for the new Internet rules which are being interpreted as an attack on privacy of a user, the government while clarifying the rules questioned the why critics were silent when the draft rules were opened for public opinion.

R Chandrashekhar, Secretary in the Department of Information Technology, in an interaction with PTI said views from all stakeholders were taken and the best practices prevalent globally were incorporated in the new rules.

He said the government cannot allow complete insulation to anyone from any illegitimate activity which involves a body or person and hence the rules were framed to fix the liability on service providers, intermediaries, bodies looking after details of users, and users.

“The rules were made to define that liability and restrict that liability and that has been precisely done,” Chandrashekhar clarified.
