Indian Gov threatens BlackBerry, Skype with ban

gauharjk (1175207) writes "India's Department of Telecommunications (DOT) has been asked by the government to serve a notice to Skype and Research In Motion (RIM) to ensure that their email and other data services comply with formats that can be read by security and intelligence agencies, or face a ban in India if they do not comply within 15 days. A similar notice is also being sent to Google asking it to provide access to content on Gmail in a readable format.

India has never really grown out of the communist-fascist bureaucratic culture where the government has ultimate power."
