The impact of the Indian government's new IT laws on social media companies is beginning to show. Facebook-owned app WhatsApp released its first compliance report on Thursday. As of Thursday, WhatsApp had banned 20 lakh Indian accounts containing catastrophic content.


According to the company's report, 20 lakh accounts were banned in India between May 15 and June 15 this year, while the company received 345 complaints during the period. WhatsApp is banning about 8 million accounts worldwide every month. Other social media platforms like Google, Coo, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have also released compliance reports.


95% ban due to spam

The company clarified that more than 95% of the bans were due to improper use of automated or bulk messaging (spam). WhatsApp said the number of banned accounts has increased since 2019, as the company's advanced system is helping to identify such accounts.


Compliance report is required under the new IT rules

Under the new IT rules, it is mandatory for social media companies to submit compliance reports. Under the new rules, digital platforms with more than 5 million users are required to submit a compliance report every month. It is necessary to mention the complaints received by the company from the users and the action taken on them.
