By June 1st, 2015 AT 2:35 PM

The government has set up centres at Delhi and Bengaluru for interception of telephone and internet services for lawful purpose. The government has also installed servers at different locations of telecommunication companies as part of the centralised monitoring system (CMS) for interception and monitoring of communications like voice, data, SMS and internet. Sources said that 14 regional centres across the country will be established in future.

According to a report by Economic Times, the equipment installation at the Delhi and Bengaluru centres have been completed and is currently undergoing testing process. The centre at Delhi will act as the centralised data centre (CMC) whereas the Bengaluru centre will be the disaster recovery site. The CMS will have central and regional database which will help central and state level law enforcement agencies in interception and monitoring.

In was in 2011, the government approved a project of centralised monitoring system (CMS) to automate the process of lawful interception and monitoring of communications and had earmarked Rs 400 crore for the purpose.

Now the operators will say there is a need to monitor what’s app and other voip calls, and this is a security threat to the nation and thus they will try to block voip calls.

If they listen to the conversations of most of the lovers, they will stop intercepting. It is that worst and shameless.

What is your problem in how lovers talk? India is a democratic country. People have rights to do whatever they want to. Even if it is shameless you better dont watch or listen. And seriously are you still living in 19th or 20th century? Please update yourself and your mentality.
