The Centre has requested a thorough investigation on the subject. Among other allegations, WhatsApp has also been subjected to the accusation that it has violated section 4 of the Competition Commission Act of India 2002. This accusation was even validated by a single-judge bench of the Delhi High Court upon challenge.
As we know, WhatsApp is a platform that is used by millions of people for the sake of convenience in communication. The new policies of the government have already been puzzling to the people as they are skeptical about the security of their privacy and communication on online platforms. On top of that, if the online service providing companies themselves come up with terms that are confusing and manipulative, it becomes all the more difficult for the people who are dealing with the existing difficult times under the current situation of the second wave of covid 19. Further details and the ultimate judgment of the court are still awaited.
