Centre to bring Law to prevent Abuse of Section 66A of IT Act

New Delhi, March 24: After the Supreme Court scrapped the Section 66A of IT Act, the government led by the BJP on Tuesday made its stand clear on the law by writing to the court that the Centre does not support the Act that restricts the freedom of speech and expression provided to all the citizens under Article 19(1) of the Constitution of India.

Talking to media, Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the government will bring a new law with additional guidelines to prevent abuse of the Section 66A of the IT Act that allows the arrest of any person for posting objectionable content on websites and social networking sites.

He made it clear that stand of the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was different from the UPA government.

He said that he will go through the verdict made by the apex court today and will reply to the court soon.
