There’s an act in 2000 and an amendment in 2008. Nothing in 2011…

Got a link to “Crocodile in Water Tiger On Land”? Looks a likely RSS addition.

everyone’s referring to it loosely as IT Act, 2011, but technically, it’s Information Technology Rules (Intermediary Guidelines), 2011, an addition to the IT Act. https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:-uDAegqiwMQJ:www.mit.gov.in/sites/upload_files/dit/files/RNUS_CyberLaw_15411.pdf+information+technology+act+2011&hl=en&gl=in&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjC-0iwPZEZGUzAJmzM_cOAfSeLXk0TSY4QqALibeV6ugCjMMf57hTlO4JRxHU8g3NR1jVGdXIAd_3KWJEGY3M-v9GJRs-6ZN31YCvwe40U15tzRJJUgF3_60T9GlzHG3khGzMa&sig=AHIEtbRyaLXl5NFiEQiVVzYlfvA2bhO2wQ&pli=1
