Google said that ‘we first thoroughly investigated those content according to our community guidelines , and then they were removed. The report also states that there shall be a gap of two months for reporting, for sufficient time for data processing and verification, under IT regulations. A Google spokesperson said that since 2010, all topics have been included in our transparency report. This is the first occasion when we have submitted monthly transparency report as per new IT rules of India and such information will continue to be published in India in future also.

Google is the first major digital platform in India to release its monthly transparency report under the new IT regulations. The Government of India has made new IT rules to prevent the misuse of digital platforms. Under this, companies associated with social platforms will also have to put in place a grievance redressal mechanism. In which they will have to deploy officers to solve the complaints.
