In a recent disclosure, X, owned by Elon Musk, unveiled its monthly compliance report, revealing its stringent actions against policy violators in India. Between February 26 and March 25, the company banned over 213,000 accounts across the nation, primarily for violations related to child sexual exploitation, dissemination of non-consensual nudity, and endorsements of terrorism on the platform.

The report highlighted that 212,627 accounts were flagged and banned for circulating illegal and harmful content, with an additional 1,235 accounts banned for promoting terrorism within India. X emphasized its zero-tolerance policy towards any content featuring or endorsing child sexual exploitation or terrorism.

As concerns rise over harmful content online, platforms like X are intensifying efforts to combat such activities. X received 5,158 complaints from Indian users during the reporting period, promptly addressing grievances and overturning suspensions for seven accounts based on specific circumstances.

Despite overturning some suspensions, the majority of reported accounts remained banned, showcasing the company’s commitment to policy enforcement. X also fielded 29 general account inquiries, demonstrating its active engagement with users on various fronts.
