The Supreme Court took off Center’s replay to WhatsApp, Indian authorities

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on monday  issued a notice to messaging app WhatsApp as well as two ministries- IT and finance – seeking a detailed reply  on a plea alleging that the social media giant does not comply with the provision of appointing a grievance officer and other laws of India.
A bench of Justices R F Nariman and Indu Malhotra was hearing a plea which alleged an organisation, Centre for Accountability and Systemic Change, to restrain the social media giant from proceeding with its payment systems unless it fully complies with provisions of the Reserve Bank of India.

The plea said that while companies like Facebook and Google have appointed Grievance Officers for users in India, WhatsApp had not. The top court has asked the parties to file the reply within four weeks.
