The new rules say that commercial providers of pornography have to ensure that they make the users undergo strict stages of verification before they can watch the content.

The new verification system could go as far as asking consumers desirous of consuming porn online to have them enter their complete address on a database. They could also be required to buy a pass from newsagents.

If the pornographic websites fail to follow the government orders and the new rules, they could face a blanket ban or even blocking of the payment services.

The rationale given by the government in introducing the new measures is to stop porn from becoming so accessible to the kids. The government is worried that those below 15 years of age are being harmed by porn on the web.

According to a data released by Pornhub website in 2018, India is the third largest consumer of ban in the world. India is only behind USA and UK in this list.
