Twitter has decided to appoint a new Chief Compliance Officer in India.
The social media company will soon share information about this with the IT Ministry of the Government of India. Twitter has taken this step after the last chance given by the Government of India to the company to comply with the new IT rules.
Under the new IT Act that came into force on May 26 last month, the company had to immediately hire a chief executive officer in India. However, the company did not employ anyone in India at that time. The American company had last week assured the Indian government that it was in the final stages of the process of appointing a Chief Compliance Officer in India soon. The company is going to share its information with the government in the coming week.
A Twitter spokesperson said on Tuesday (June 16)…
that the company will make every effort to meet the conditions of the new IT rule of the Indian government. The company will inform the IT Ministry about this at every step. The company has appointed a transferred Chief Compliance Officer for this. Its information will be shared with the ministry soon.
The notice was issued by the government on June 5
On June 5, the Government of India had issued a notice to the microblogging company for not accepting the new IT Rules 2021. In the notice issued by the government, it was said that the social media company has not provided the information of the Chief Compliance Officer to the government under the new IT rules. Apart from this, a Resident Grievance Officer and a Nodal Contact Person are also to be appointed by the company.
Under the new rules,
these officers should not be employees of Twitter India. In response to the government’s notice, the company said on June 7 that Twitter would do everything possible to meet the new rule. The Chief Compliance Officer will act as a link between Twitter and government agencies for all kinds of legal issues.
