Centre Asks For 827 Porn Sites To Be Blocked !

In a significant development, at least 827 adult sites have been banned by the Union Government. The Department of Telecom (DoT) has directed the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block 827 sites with immediate effect. The move is following the Uttarakhand High Court’s order to Union Government.

The Uttarakhand High Court has earlier asked to block 857 websites. Whereas, the Ministry of Electronics and IT (Meity) found 30 portals without any pornographic content. And hence, it directed the ISPs to block 827 sites.

“All the internet service licensees are instructed to take immediate necessary action for blocking of 827 websites as per the direction from Meity and for the compliance of the Hon’ble High Court order,” the Department of Telecom said in an order issued to internet service providers.

The high court order was issued on September 27, 2018, and it was received by Meity on October 8.
