WASHINGTON, August 31, 2010 - India's government has given BlackBerry-maker RIM two more months to comply with a request for increased access to e-mail from its users.
India is just the latest in a string of nations asking the Canadian firm for this technological access. The nation gave RIM a deadline of Aug. 31 to grant it increased access. The government and RIM have reached an agreement to give the firm two more months while the Indian government reviews a recent proposal by RIM.
The details of that concession have not been released.
"Any communication through the telecom networks should be accessible to the law enforcement agencies" said the statement from India's Ministry of Home Affairs. "RIM have made certain proposals for lawful access by law enforcement agencies and these would be operationalized immediately."
RIM has 1.1 million customers in India.
