Posting online comments: Centre instructs states under repealed Section 66A of IT Act
14-07-2021 Wed 21:39
On Wednesday the Center asked the State to instruct its police not to file charges in connection with posting of online comments in accordance with abolished Section 66A of the Information Technology Act 2000. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has released a statement on it and requested states and Union Territories (UTs) to follow it.
In 2015, the Supreme Court reversed Section 66A of the IT Act, which, after a lengthy battle by defenders of the freedom of expression, made online offensive remarks a criminal offence.
The apex court, however, recently said it was surprising that the decision that struck the legislation was not yet applied.
