India has banned the use of online converter services to buy and sell goods online.
The decision came after a complaint filed by the Centre for Constitutional Freedoms and a number of others, which argued that the new laws would infringe on freedom of speech.
The Digital India (Digital Economy) Bill 2017 was introduced in the state legislature on December 17.
It aims to regulate online marketplace of goods and services.
The law prohibits the use or sale of any device that can be used for the conversion of digital content, which is now known as the converter.
The new law also says that any device which can convert digital content into digital content shall be deemed a converter and shall be subject to the provisions of the Act.
The proposed legislation has been met with strong opposition from online platforms.
Digital India is a coalition of consumer advocacy organisations that supports the Digital India campaign, which seeks to protect consumers from digital monopolies.
The group has called on the Centre to drop the proposed laws and protect consumers’ rights.
The new law came into force on January 1.
The government said it would ensure the right to access online services and services, as well as to the content on these platforms, was not restricted.
