    WhatsApp is yet to comply with the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) data localization norms, reported The Times of India.

    WhatsApp is yet to comply with the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) data localization norms, reported The Times of India.
    The central bank made the revelation in response to an affidavit filed with the Supreme Court this week after the apex court made RBI a party to a writ petition filed in January, said the report.
    The development, the report said, comes after an NGO named Centre for Accountability and Systemic Change filed the petition challenging WhatsApp’s compliance standards and absence of a local grievance officer.
    According to the report, this is the first time ever that the Reserve Bank has made any statement about WhatsApp’s payments business and compliance with data localization norms.
