The Union IT Ministry has prepared the draft. Under this, companies can be asked to localize data and register themselves as a company in India.

Preparations to curb Internet media like Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook have been completed. While the government is going to strengthen the rights of users by amending the related law, it will also be ensured that the government's order to remove any objectionable and inflammatory post is immediately followed. It is believed that an announcement in this regard will be made by Tuesday.

According to highly placed sources, the Union IT Ministry has prepared the draft. Under this, companies can be asked to localize data and register themselves as a company in India. Currently, Internet media majors represent their Indian entity just for billing. Their entire system remains abroad for the rest of the work. Everything happens at the will of the company concerned. It can restrict whoever it wants. 

Under the new law, this arbitrary attitude of the Internet media will not work. The internet media will continuously make aware of what types of posts can be put and not what kind. Despite the warning, the user did not agree, only then the internet media will block it. It is said that the draft is late for the Prime Minister's approval.

Recently, Twitter was reluctant to close the link linked to it, despite being tweeted and informed by the Farmers Genocide hashtag on Twitter. The pro-Khalistan and pro-Pakistan Twitter accounts were tweeted in the name of the Kisan agitation with the aim of inciting riots and violence in India, and Twitter also ignored the government's request to close those accounts.
