The appeal was being heard in the court against the investigation of the WhatsApp privacy policy being done by the Competition Commission of India. Salve clarified the company's position and said that WhatsApp has decided to hold the update currently under investigation by CCI. He said that the government does not allow such a policy in the future, WhatsApp will not implement it.

Salve, in favour of WhatsApp, said that the company will wait for the new law related to data protection and privacy in India to come into force and come into force. He said, "It has been clarified by WhatsApp that there will be no change in the situation before the new law comes." Salve said that if the Government of India gives permission to implement the policy separately, only then it will be implemented, or else the company will not move forward.
