Indian Government started investigation of WhatsApp Controversy
According to an online report, the Indian government has started investigating WhatsApp update control. The government is collecting information about the case. Also, the matter is being negotiated with the IT ministry at a high level. The government is concerned about the regulatory vacuum in data protection. It is worth noting that at present no data protection law exists in India. The Data Protection Bill is yet to be approved by the Parliament House. In such a situation, it will take time for this bill to become law. In such a situation, WhatsApp can be called for questioning by the government soon.
WhatsApp may have to answer some important questions in this central government’s muscle – such as why WhatsApp has implemented different rules for India and the European Union regarding data privacy. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has asked the Indian government to ban WhatsApp and Facebook immediately. Meanwhile, it has been clarified by WhatsApp that no personal chat will be shared.
