SC verdict on Section 66A positive development, says Nasscom

Quashing of Section 66A of the Information Technology (IT) Act 2000 by the Supreme Court is a positive development and augurs well for the country, a top official of the IT industry body Nasscom said on Tuesday.

 

“The Supreme Court verdict is a positive development and a right step as it (order) aligns with the provisions of the IT Act,” National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom) president R Chandrashekhar told IANS from New Delhi.

Section 66A reads: “Any person who sends by any means of a computer resource any information that is grossly offensive or has a menacing character; or any information which he knows to be false, but for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, danger, obstruction, insult shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and with fine.”
