In a statement issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, it has been said that the states and union territories have been asked to ask all the police stations under their jurisdiction not to register cases under the omitted section 66A of the IT Act. .
In this, the ministry also requested that if any case has been registered under the said section in the states and union territories, then such cases should be canceled immediately.
The Supreme Court’s decision to quash the section was given on 24 March 2015 in Shreya Singhal v Union of India. This section was vacated from the date of the order, hence no action can be taken under it.
The section empowered the police to arrest a person making ‘derogatory’ remarks online and was punishable by a jail term of three years.
The Supreme Court had earlier this month issued notice to the Center over the use of Section 66A of the IT Act and said it was surprising that the decision to scrap the section has not been implemented so far.
