Telegram, X (previously Twitter), and YouTube were given notice by the ministry of electronics and information technology (MeitY) on Friday to delete child sexual abuse material (CSAM) from their platforms in India.

The notification further highlights the necessity of CSAM’s immediate and complete removal and urges for the execution of proactive measures to take it down.

Rajeev Chandrasekhar, minister of state for electronics and IT, has been a strong proponent of eliminating such damaging content from the Indian internet and has made sure that this strategy becomes the ministry’s policy objective.
