The social media intermediary members of the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) on Wednesday said that they have adopted a voluntary code of ethics for the upcoming general elections.

“Under the Code, participants have voluntarily undertaken to establish a high-priority communication channel with the nodal officers designated by the ECI,” said the association.

“Participants including BIGO, ByteDance, Facebook, Google, Sharechat and Twitter have also agreed to take action on the content reported by the nodal officer, expeditiously, in accordance with the law,” they said.
