BlackBerry gets a deadline from the Indian Government
We know since quite some time that the Indian government has been recently taking serious steps against, RIM, GMail and Skype as the data which passes through them is completely unreadable to the government. The Indian government has requested all the three companies to come up with a solution which may help the Department of Technology read the data.
It looks like RIM may soon have to take some actions as the company has got an August 31st deadline by the government. If RIM does not provide the government with some kind of security access, BBM and eMail services will be switched off.
Also, the government seems to be very keen on pointing out that it will later take similar actions against Google and Skype as the government request access to intercept and monitor the data.
