MeitY has directed social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, X, and YouTube, to take down deceptive deepfake content within a day. This action comes after the widespread circulation of a deepfake video featuring actress Rashmika Mandanna on social media. The ministry had issued a similar warning to the platforms earlier this year, after it received reports regarding the potential use of AI-generated deepfakes, that were manipulating people by generating doctored content.
