No Political Comments: CRPF’s New Social Media Regulations

The CRPF, the largest paramilitary force in the nation, has updated its social media policies and asked its members to refrain from making comments on contentious or political issues that can “haunt” them in the future.

The force’s headquarters in Delhi released the two-page guidelines last week after learning that “force employees were using social media sites to air their personal issues, which is against CCS Conduct Rules 1964 and may incur disciplinary action.”

PTI has received a directive issued in this regard, and it claims that new instructions are being provided to educate employees about “cyberbullying and harassment” as well as to make them aware of it.
