WhatsApp withdraw new privacy policy, it is one sided: Indian Government

The central government has asked WhatsApp to withdraw the changes made to its privacy terms, as unilateral changes are not acceptable. The Ministry of Information and Technology has written a letter to WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart, describing the move as ‘all or nothing’ (all and nothing) inappropriate and unacceptable. The ministry has said that India is the largest user base of WhatsApp worldwide and the largest market for its service, but the new terms of the privacy policy are very worrying for India. The government has said that WhatsApp should rethink the proposed changes and rethink information privacy, freedom to choose, and data security. The government has also told WhatsApp that the committee of Parliament is seriously considering the provisions of the Personal Data Protection Bill, so WhatsApp should have waited until the bill becomes law before bringing a new privacy policy. Different privacy policies for India and European countries have also been objected to.
