New Delhi: Tightening the noose on social media platform, the government said content flagged need to be removed

Amid reports of a new IT law in the works, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology plans to make amendments that would make it mandatory for Twitter, Facebook, Google and other social media to take down and/or block content flagged by the government.

If these platforms don't abide by the new rules, they will lose protection under intermediary status.
