Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar announced on Friday, November 24, that the Centre will designate an official to monitor content after a wave of deepfake videos caused widespread distress and anger on social media. "The Rule Seven officer will also be a person who will create a platform where it will be very easy for citizens to bring to the attention of the Government of India their notices or allegations or reports of violation of law by the platforms", he told the media. Further, he said that the Rule Seven officer would take that digital platform information and respond accordingly. So we'll make it very simple for the citizen to report violations of law by platforms to the government, he added. Deepfake Issue: 'Safe Harbour' Clause Doesn't Apply if Platforms Do Not Take Adequate Steps to Remove Deepfakes, Says Communications Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw.
