NEW DELHI: As per the guidelines laid by the new IT rules, every social media site has to appoint a grievance officer, nodal officer and chief compliance officer. These officials are required to be a helping hand for the huge customers of these networking sites. And they have to be the residents of India.

According to reports, India’s new social media guidelines are intended to curb the abuse and misuse of digital platforms. It also provides users with a strong grievance redressal platform.

As a result, the grievance officer must recognise the complaint within 24 hours of its receipt and resolve it within 15 days of its receipt. Any order, notice, or instruction issued by the authorities will be received and acknowledged by the officer.

As per the new IT rules, social media companies will have to put down flagged content within 36 hours, and remove within 24 hours content that is flagged for nudity, pornography etc.
