Quick links News headlinesMumbai:The Supreme Court on Monday refused to give a legal framework for the new law on instant messaging, saying the Constitution does not require it.
The government had on Monday sought a stay from the apex court over the law, saying it violates the right to privacy guaranteed by the Constitution.
The apex court has set March 30 as the deadline for filing an appeal against the order.
The Supreme court has also directed the central government to take legal steps to curb the growing number of fake accounts created and exploited to post malicious messages on social media.
The law will allow the authorities to make it a criminal offence to send or receive threatening or abusive messages, and prohibit those involved from using the internet to communicate malicious messages.
A separate law will also empower the government to regulate the proliferation of the services that allow people to communicate with each other using instant messaging platforms.
The central government has sought the court to set March 20 as the date for filing the appeal, saying a stay would prevent people from receiving the order without having an opportunity to file an appeal.
