Follow Us

The Government of India told Research In Motion (RIM) the makers of BlackBerry to install its server in India for tracking its messenger (BBM) and BlackeBerry Enterprise mail service (BES) or close its messenger and mail services.

The Govt of India has given August 31st, 2010 deadline to RIM to come up with a solution to address India's security concerns. Earlier RIM had offered to provide information on a deferred basis, but that was not acceptable to the security agencies and Home Ministry.The security agencies said that they needed real time information, not the deferred one.




The Indian security agencies cannot gain access to heavily encrypted corporate email sent on a Black-Berry handset as a result the Home Ministry rejected the RIM's proposal, saying it was detrimental to country's security.
