American internet behemoths want changes made to India's proposed new IT rules


An industry group representing several tech behemoths has asked the Indian government to make a number of changes to proposed amendments to the country's new IT rules, warning that those changes "negate" the government's commitment to ease of doing business.


India proposed a number of changes to the IT rules last month, including the establishment of an appeals panel with veto power over social media firms' content moderation decisions. The Asia Internet Coalition, which includes Apple, Meta, Google, Amazon, Twitter, and Spotify, has urged New Delhi to allow the industry to use a self-regulatory grievance redressal mechanism instead of a grievance appellate committee.
