The government and telecom service providers were heading towards a virtual deadlock on the issue of telecom companies providing facilities to meet the May 31 deadline of tracking caller locations on real-time basis.

While the service providers, represented by Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) and Association of Unified Service Providers of Indian (AUSPI) opposed the move, the government showed reluctance to postpone the deadline beyond May 31 and directed the companies to strictly adhere to the time for having location-based servers in place.

The move comes in the wake of concern expressed by the Home Ministry to the Telecom Department over the non-availability of locations of mobiles phones as well as call details indicating the place from where it was made. A high-level meeting was held today in this regard.

ah well. i was just using pgp as an example. there might be ways to encrypt voice on a smartphone using an app :p but encrypting your location would be tough.

might be wrong but the government seeks long term records of all connections so that they can see who was where when :p of course, cell phone tracking is already possible in real time.
