Twitter names Vinay Prakash as resident grievance officer for India

Twitter has named Vinay Prakash as its Resident Grievance Officer for India, according to the company’s website. The US-based company has been in the eye of a storm over its alleged failure to comply with the new IT rules in India, which mandates, among other requirements, the appointment of three key personnel chief compliance officer, nodal officer and grievance officer by social media platforms with over 50 lakh users. All three personnel have to be residents in India.

As per the information updated on Twitter’s website, Vinay Prakash is the Resident Grievance Officer (RGO). Users can contact him using an email ID listed on the page.

“Twitter can be contacted in India at the following address: 4th Floor, The Estate, 121 Dickenson Road, Bangalore 560 042,” the page further said.

Prakash’s name appears along with Jeremy Kessel, who is the Global Legal Policy and is based in the US.

The company has also published its compliance report for the period of 26 May 2021, to 25 June 2021. This was another key requirement under the IT rules that came into effect on 26 May.

Twitter had previously appointed Chatur as its interim resident grievance officer for India as required by the IT rules. However, Chatur stepped down last month.

Twitter has been at loggerheads with the Indian government over the new social media rules. The government has confronted Twitter over deliberate defiance and failure to comply with the country’s new IT rules, despite repeated reminders.

Twitter which has an estimated 1.75 crore users in India lost its legal shield as an intermediary in India, becoming liable for users posting any unlawful content.

On 8 July, Twitter had informed the Delhi High Court that it has appointed an interim chief compliance officer, who is a resident of India, and that it will make an endeavour to fill the regular position within eight weeks as per the new IT Rules.

It had said it was in the process of making an appointment to an Indian resident as its interim RGO and is expected to do so on or before 11 July and details would be updated on its ‘Help Page’ as soon as possible.
