Goverment whips GMAIL, asks all its employees to use NIC

30th August 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

GmailNew Delhi, India, August 30, 2013: The union government today swung to action to checkmate suspected US cyber espionage on its official data. It banned gmail for all government employees for use in official correspondence, since gmail’s server is parked in the USA.

The secretary in the department of electronics and information technology J. Satyanarayana, said, “Gmail data of Indian users are available outside India, we are looking to address this in the government domain, where there are large amounts of critical data.”

As a senior official from the ministry of communications and information technology said, the government is going to notify the same to more than 5 lakhs employees barring them from using US based services including Google’s Gmail. On the contrary, they are encouraged to use the official emailing service provided by the National Informatics Center of India.

Some months back, US National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has said that the US Government has access to all personal data hosted on the Internet including chats, and emails from companies like Facebook, Google and Apple. The project has been called PRISM and allowed the NSA to have direct access to network infrastructure to many countries.
