In fact, the company has not yet complied with the issue of Residential Complaints, Nodal Matters and Chief Compliance Matters in India. For which the foreign company has to face such drastic measures from the Center.
Article 69 states that no intermediary shall be legally or otherwise liable for any third-party information or communication links available or hosted on its platform.

The law states that this protection shall apply only if the mediator does not in any way initiate the transmission of the message in question, does not select the recipient of the transmitted message, and does not modify any information contained in the transmission.

This means that as long as a platform acts as a messenger by transmitting messages from point A to point B without interfering with its content in any way, there is no legal implication for disseminating the message.

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad raises a different question against the microblogging platform Twitter. The Union Minister also said that the company deliberately did not implement the new information technology rules despite the time limit.

He says, “It’s amazing that Twitter portrays itself as a free speech flag bearer. Twitter has chosen to deliberately disregard mediatorial guidelines. . ”

As of now, the protection provided to Twitter under Section 69 of the Information Technology Act is now Nike. The Twitter authorities will be held responsible for any violent posts published on this platform.  In the future, the rate of Foreign direct investment (FDI) in Twitter media and publications is likely to fall below the 28 percent limit, which means that the platform may be forced to seek Indian buyers for the remaining 64 percent.
