Centre to maintain status quo in forming GAC to handle social media content concerns

The centre is discussing whether to move further with the idea of creating a GAC to deal with complaints against the content on social media sites.

The Business Standard cited a government official as saying that social media companies that wish to create self-regulatory bodies of intermediaries must follow the same process as GAC. MeitY had already gotten in touch with foreign social media middlemen, the official said. The centre has decided to proceed with its plan to establish GAC after considering their feedback regarding the inclusivity of the self-regulatory body.
