In a U-turn, the Central government on Friday told the Supreme Court that it was withdrawing its notification proposing to create a social media hub, which some have alleged could become a tool to monitor online activities of citizens.

A Bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra, considered the submission of Attorney General K.K. Venugopal that the impugned notification was being withdrawn, and disposed off petitions challenging it.

Mr. Venugopal told the Bench, comprising justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud, that the social media policy would be reviewed completely by the government.

The Bench was hearing a petition filed by Trinamool Congress MLA Mahua Moitra alleging that the Centre’s social media hub policy was to be used as a tool to monitor social media activities of citizens and sought the quashing of the same.

The apex court, while agreeing to hear the plea on July 13, asked the government whether its move to create such a hub was to tap people’s WhatsApp messages, and observed that it would be like creating a “surveillance state”.
