NEW DELHI: The Government on December 5 held another round of meeting with social media platforms to review progress made by them in tackling deepfake issue, according to sources.
Platforms have been clearly told that the 11 user harms or ‘illegalities’ flagged under IT rules are in fact also mapped to equivalent provisions in IPC (Indian Penal Code) and hence criminal consequences exist even under the current laws.
Sources said that a follow-up meeting was held on December 5 with social media platforms to assess the progress made after the November 24 meeting.
While some platforms have complied, others that been slow in doing so, have been given additional time. The Government has made it clear that it will continue with its ‘zero tolerance approach’ on user harming,
