WASHINGTON, September 3, 2010 – The Indian government has announced that it will give notice to all communications services that it would like access to their networks. In the aftermath of last year’s Mumbai terror attacks, the government wants to be able to access communications networks to monitor for terrorist activities.

“They have to install servers in the country,” said federal Home Secretary G.K. Pillai.

The nation has already given notice to Skype and Google. The government is also still in negotiations with BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion to come to a final deal on accessing information in BlackBerry user e-mails.
