Deepfakes are the new talk of the town in the AI Industry, which will be a menace to the people and their identity. How? Read the slides.


We have recently seen many deepfake videos of prominent figures in India. These videos look real and cannot be recognized easily.

What is DeepFake?

A video in which a person's face or body has been digitally altered so that they appear to be someone else is typically used maliciously or to spread false information.


We can’t deal with such challenges because there is a vacuum in the IT 2000 Regulation Act for such AI Deepfakes, but you can recognise it [check 8th slide].

In Process

To counter this, we will see some regulation very soon and draft new rules after discussion with the platform and experts, said Ashwini Vaishnav.

4 Pillars

There will be actionable items around four pillars within ten days. The pillars are detection, preventing the spread of deep fakes, strengthening reporting mechanisms, and awareness.

PM Concern

PM Modi also raises a red flag after seeing a deepfake video of Rahmika, Kajol, Ratan Tata and himself. Considered a big concern and a threat to society.

How to spot a deep fake?

– Sloppy LIP to synchronise the voice. – Unrealistic facial hair. – The dull shadow around the eyes. – Overly smooth or wrinkled skin


Being found guilty of circulation or creating deepfakes will cost you a penalty of 1 lakhs and three years of imprisonment.
