The short video streaming mobile application TikTok has sent a letter to the Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
Mumbai : The short video streaming mobile application TikTok has informed the Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology that it has complied with the new social media and intermediary guidelines. The app is currently banned in India, but the company says it has complied with the new conditions set by the central government.

A person familiar with the matter said, “In a letter to the ministry, Tiktok said they have complied with the new guidelines. The person said the letter was sent to the ministry as part of regular communication. A ministry official, however, said it was a good thing the company was following the guidelines, but that it was unlikely to have any effect on the ban on the app.
An official in the ministry said the ban on ticktack has been imposed for a different reason. The company is complying with the new IT rules, which is good, but the ban is a different issue. The ban on ticketing has nothing to do with the new digital rules. Also, TickTock is not one of those social media sites that has 50 million or more users. Such social media sites were asked to share compliance details.
TickTalk hopes for a comeback in India
A Tiktok spokesperson said the company is looking forward to returning to India after working with the government. Tiktok is fully committed to the Indian market. We have always worked to uphold the law, looking forward to returning to India and giving our millions of creators and users a fun platform again. In doing so, we will abide by all government regulations.
The central government is preparing for a major crackdown on Twitter
During the Blue Tick in Twitter case, the Government of India has sent a final notice to Twitter to comply with the new IT rules. In the notice, the government has made it clear to Twitter that it must immediately comply with the IT Rules imposed on social media from May 26, and if Twitter does not do so, the government may take legal action against Twitter.
On Saturday morning, Twitter deleted the blue tick (verified) from Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s personal account. However, a few hours later, Twitter re-verified their account and returned the blue tick. Not only that, Twitter has also removed the blue tick from the account of RSS president Mohan Bhagwat. Since then, the debate between the central government and Twitter over the new IT rules has resumed. Demonstrating toughness against Twitter, the government has given a final warning to abide by IT rules.
The government issued a stern warning to Twitter
The government has said that Twitter India has been given final instructions to comply with the new rules immediately. Failure to comply with this notice will result in revocation of liability under Section 79 of the IT Act, 2000 and action will be taken against Twitter under the IT Act and other penal laws of India.
Twitter refuses to comply with government rules
Earlier, giants like Google, Facebook and WhatsApp had agreed to appoint statutory officers in line with the new IT guidelines, but Twitter refused to comply with the rules.
