India Mandates Government Approval for AI Deployments

India Mandates Government Approval for AI Deployments
India Mandates Government Approval for AI Deployments

AI technology in India now requires government approval prior to public release, as mandated by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). In a significant move towards regulating AI, developers must declare any potential faults in their tech before deployment, suggesting heightened oversight in the AI sector.

This policy comes with additional requirements, including user consent pop-ups and anti-bias measures. It indicates the government's proactive approach to ethical considerations in AI, such as avoiding discrimination and ensuring electoral integrity. Despite criticisms from industry insiders on the impact of such regulatory actions, compliance within a fortnight is expected.

The advisory, though not yet legally binding, points to a future where AI operations will be closely monitored by legislation. The measures apply to all AI platforms, particularly large language models, reinforcing the accountability of digital intermediaries for the content and behavior of their AI products in India.
