The rules only empower the ordinary users of social media when they become victims of abuse and misuse," Prasad posted on micro-blogging platform Koo and also tweeted.
IT Minister Shankar Prasad on Thursday said that WhatsApp users don't have anything to fear about new social media rules, that are designed to stop abuse and misuse of platforms, and offer users a strong forum for grievance redressal.
Prasad said that the govt welcomes criticism including the proper to ask questions.
"The rules only empower the standard users of social media once they become victims of abuse and misuse," Prasad posted on micro-blogging platform Koo and also tweeted.
The government fully recognises and respects the proper of privacy, he asserted.
"Ordinary users of WhatsApp don't have anything to fear about the new Rules. Its entire objective is to seek out out who started the message that led to commissioning of specific crimes mentioned within the Rules," Prasad added.
The new IT rules require the social media companies to line up an India-based grievance redressal officer, compliance officer, and nodal officer "so that many users of social media who have a grievance get a forum for its redressal", he said.
The government on Wednesday had staunchly defended its new digital rules, saying the need of messaging platforms like WhatsApp to disclose origin of flagged messages doesn't violate privacy, and went on to hunt a compliance report from large social media firms.
The new rules, announced on February 25, require large social media platforms -- defined as those with over 50 lakh users within the country -- to follow additional due diligence, including appointment of chief compliance officer, nodal contact person and resident grievance officer.
Non-compliance with rules would end in these platforms losing the intermediary status that gives them immunity from liabilities over any third-party data hosted by them. In other words, they might be responsible for criminal action just in case of complaints.
