Hi, what are you looking for?

Attend our Members Call on Twitter vs Govt, RBI’s Vision 2025, Alt News and Razorpay and more

Significant developments are currently underway in tech policy in India:

  1. Twitter vs Govt: Twitter has legally challenged the Indian Government over certain blocking orders under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000.
  2. Reserve Bank of India released its ‘Vision 2025’ document, outlining its action plan for the next 3 years.
  3. Razorpay shared the data of Alt News’ donors with law enforcement in response to a legal request, triggering a massive backlash.
  4. Consultations are ongoing on amendments to the IT Rules 2021. Meanwhile, the government is trying to get all petitions against the IT Rules transferred to the Supreme Court.

To discuss these developments and their impact, MediaNama is organizing a Members call.
