IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, the Government will insist on WhatsApp developing a mechanism to trace origin of messages in cases where the platform is misused by terrorists and 'rogue' elements.

WhatsApp Global Head Will Cathcart assured the minister of prompt action in these issues of "concern"  in a meeting on Friday.

On WhatsApp's proposed payments service, Mr. Prasad noted that the platform is also going into payments service in accordance with the Reserve Bank of India and NPCI requirements.

He also asked WhatsApp to participate in India's trillion-dollar digital economy vision and said the company is "welcome to explore India-specific products because of their wide reach".
