S Iswaran on Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Bill(Updated: )
The Government is working closely with tech giants to develop anti-fake news measures. These will be included in the Codes of Practice, said Minister for Communications and Information S Iswaran in Parliament on Wednesday (May 8). He said the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Bill contains a calibrated set of measures needed to fight falsehoods in the digital age. His ministry will also form a new POFMA Office as the Competent Authority to administer the Bill. It will come under the Info-communications Media Development Authority.
