Given the size of the growing digital demographic in India, and the wide user base of these apps, the decision was momentous - as well as unique, as far as proceedings under the Information Technology Act 2000 go. In this episode of the GameChanger Law Advisors podcast, Associates Subhashini Narayanan and Atulaa Krishnamurthy discuss the provisions of the IT Act and Rules under which the ban appears to have been effected, and other issues that the ban throws up.
