Govt wants emails to go through Indian servers

The Centre will soon ask the internet content providers Yahoo, Gmail and others to route all e-mails accessed in India through the country even if the mail account is registered outside the country.

In a high-level meeting chaired by Union Home Secretary R K Singh, the Department of Information Technology (DIT) was asked to take up the matter at the earliest with the content providers.

The move comes following the several instances where security agencies failed to get a real-time access to some e-mails as they were registered outside the country but were opened in India.

“It was decided to advice Yahoo, Gmail etc that all e-mails accessed from India should be routed through servers in India,” it said, adding that the DIT would take up the matter with the content providers.

It may be noted that recently security agencies failed to access accounts of suspected terrorists of Indian Mujahideen during the surveillance period as the same had been opened in a European country.
