The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) will organise a public consultation of the proposed changes to the Information Technology Rules of 2021 on June 23, 2022.

The consultation is likely to be attended by representatives of social media intermediaries, tech policy and other business advocacy groups, cybersecurity experts and privacy activists. Recently, the MeitY had republished a draft of proposed changes to the country’s technology and social media regulations, which it had said would aim at providing more effective grievance redressal, and plug infirmities and gaps in the existing regulations.
