Security: Govt to monitor phone calls

 
The Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT), a telecom research and development organisation, is working on the Telecom Security project, which will help the government to monitor both calls in the country through a centralised system.

In the present dispensation, service providers can tap phones and provide details of conversations on the recommendations of the union home secretary or a designated police official not below the rank of joint secretary.

“It is viewed as a national project. Basically, it is about monitoring certain messages or conversations so that we can ensure security of the country,” said C-DoT Executive Director P V Acharya.
