According to Google's report, it deleted 5,76,892 pieces of content in July due to automatic detection. In June, this figure was 5,26,866. The business stated that it had included data where the sender or author of the material is based in India for data linked to automatic detection procedures.

According to Google, a single complaint may include numerous things that may or may not be related to the same or distinct pieces of content. Each unique URL in a given complaint is regarded as an individual "item" that is deleted. According to the new IT guidelines, large digital platforms with more than 5 million users will be required to submit monthly compliance reports detailing the specifics of complaints received and actions done in response. The report must also contain the number of specific communication connections or sections of the material that the intermediary has deleted or denied access to as a result of any proactive monitoring performed with automated technologies.
