Twitter’s interim resident grievance officer for India Dharmendra Chatur has reportedly quit from his post.
As per the recently announced IT rules, it is mandatory for Twitter and other social media platforms to have a grievance official who can address complaints from Indian subscribers.
As per industry sources, the social media company’s website no longer displays Chatur’s name, as required under Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021.
The development has come in the backdrop of ongoing tussle between the micro-blogging platform and the Indian government over the new social media rules. The government has slammed Twitter for deliberate defiance and failure to comply with the country’s new IT rules.
