As per the new IT rules, Indian government can ask for user information and to take down any offensive content.

Today the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Google announced that it will comply with the new IT rules. The Google CEO said that we will comply with the local laws and the company’s local teams are engaged in implementing a framework of compliance. He also said that along with the free flow of information, Google will respect the local laws of democratic countries.

According to the Google CEO, it will also comply with the requests on the information on users and will make sure that it is done within a legal framework.

The new IT rules of India state that any content that is offensive to the government will have to be taken down within 36 hours. This has created a cause for concern over privacy and individual’s freedom of speech.
