Below is the list of 11 websites that are blocked by order of the Indian government.
If you will visit above blocked sites you will not get message that the above site is blocked as per the orders of the government of India or by Department of Information Technology that is DIT.
Two of the blocked websites are grassroots news organizations connected to the Independent Media Centre: IndyBay (San Francisco Bay Area IMC) and the Arizona Indymedia website.
March 12,2010 – The bloggernews.net page that is one article is blocked.
N. Vijayashankar (Naavi) wrote a article titled as "Is E2 labs right in getting zone-h.org blocked?", criticizing the judicial blocking of Zone-H.org by E2 Labs.
CIS got the list of blocked sites from DIT.
CIS Filed a RTI and got this list from DIT.
All requests for websites blocking (except those directly from the judiciary) must be vetted by the Committee for Examination of Requests (CER) under Rule 8(4) of the Rules under s.69A of the IT Act.
Given that the DIT admits that the Designated Officer (who carries out the blocking) has received 21 requests to date, there should be at least 21 recommendations of the CER. However, the DIT has not provided CIS with the details of those 21 requests and the 21 recommendations. Now CIS is planning to file another RTI to uncover this information.
Now government of India has decided to monitor twitter and facebook sites 100%
That means each and everything including status updates or hidden messages will be monitored.
No Indian will be spared. So now on when you post anything on twitter or facebook think twice as government officers will be monitoring your conversation with your girl friend or wife or future wife or your business partner.
Some Facebook and Twitter content is already under the surveillance of the National Technical Research Organization.
Government of India has written to the department of telecom, asking it to "ensure effective monitoring of Twitter and Facebook".
What is the meaning of effective monitoring no one knows.
I feel that government of India should not monitor twitter or facebook or any site without the judicial orders.
If government or any organization has any problem with the content they should approach to the judiciary and should get such order from court.
It will be wastage of money to monitor in depth twitter and facebook sites.
