Twitter’s attitude towards the new IT rules is now becoming incomprehensible. In the recent case, the Delhi High Court has once again reprimanded Twitter. Delhi HC has asked Twitter who is its casualty worker and how it will work. Delhi High Court told Twitter what your company wants to do. If Twitter wants to comply with the new IT rule, then do it wholeheartedly.
Twitter Answered to Delhi Court for New IT Rules
On this, Twitter has said that the casual worker will be an Indian resident responsible for any complaint; we will file an affidavit regarding this. The Delhi High Court has given a week to the micro-blogging site to file a better affidavit, giving a solid order against Twitter. Justice Rekha Palli, in her ruling, said that Twitter’s testimony shows serious non-compliance with the new IT rules.
Twitter had told the High Court that the same person, Vinay Prakash, has been appointed to two posts, and it is using the word interim as the appointees are not employees but casual workers on third party contracts.
Chetan Sharma, ASG for the Centre, said, “IT rules state that a senior employee must be appointed. It cannot be a casual worker. Earlier, they called it interim; now, they call it accidental. This is complete non-compliance with the rules. They can’t make it that easy. Either they follow the rules wholeheartedly, or they don’t. This persistent non-compliance using twisted words cannot be accepted anymore.”
