Center's reply on espionage and internet control, said this pointless thing

 New Delhi, PTI. New IT rules have been implemented across the country a few months ago by the Central Government. Since then questions are being raised that the central government has changed the IT rules for the purpose of spying on the people. It is being strongly opposed by leading social media companies such as WhatsApp and Facebook that if the source of the message is tracked, then the privacy and privacy of the users will be directly threatened. The answer of the Central Government has come on all these questions.



The answer of the central government came


According to the central government, the purpose of the new IT rules is not to control the Internet and social media. The government said that it does not want to end end-to-end encryption either. The government has advised social media companies to introduce other solutions instead, so that the original source of a post can be traced. Electronics and Information Technology Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar agreed that the Internet should be free, secure and reliable for all users. But he made it clear that the Internet cannot even be a place where any kind of crime can find refuge.

Facebook challenged in court


The New Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021 have been challenged by Facebook and WhatsApp in the Delhi High Court. According to Facebook, tracing the source of a post is going to break end-to-end encryption. This is against the right to privacy of the people.
