Technical audit is necessary
CAT has demanded from Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad that the Central Government should first instruct WhatsApp not to implement the new policy from February 8 and then immediately conduct a thorough technical audit of these three social media platforms in the country. Because these three social media platforms are owned by a company. In this context, it is necessary to see how the data has been shared between these three so far and what has been used.
Kat says that till now the data that has been taken from the citizens of the country on these platforms is safe in India or has gone to some other country. It is also important to investigate this. Any compromise with the security, privacy, independence and integrity of the entire nation of data cannot be accepted.

The trick to making money by selling data!
Praveen Khandelwal said that this is a peculiar situation. It is clear that these companies are working on the policy of earning money, not for any charitable purpose in India, but to transfer that data to another country. The same thing is happening not only in the field of social media but also in the e-commerce business. With no clear policy of the government on this subject and the absence of a regulator, multinational companies find it easy to dodge the laws of India. Against the arbitrary attitude and policies of these companies, CAT will not back down in going to court. Either these companies will follow the laws of the country literally or they will have to leave India.
Made India a new target
Kat says that after failing in its effort in the European Union, Facebook has now made India a new target. In the year 2017, Facebook had to face the anger of the Anti-trust Authority of the European Union for this policy. Which not only banned Facebook, but also imposed a fine of 110 million euro dollars on Facebook, which makes it clear that these companies are habitual criminals for exploitation of the sovereign wealth of the country where they are doing legal or illegal means of commercial activities Is operating.
