Government may look at ways to ensure that email and other Internet-based messages "originating and terminating within the country" remains within Indian shores to prevent cyber snooping by foreign elements, according to sources.
"Such an arrangement would limit the capacity of foreign elements to to scrutinies intra-India traffic," official sources said.Department of Telecommunications (DoT) officials present at the meeting proposed amendment to internet service providers (ISP) licence so as to ensure that traffic originating and terminating in India should be kept limited to servers within the country.
E-mails, chat or social networking communication by Indian citizens with their acquaintances within country are communicated via foreign servers or through network of foreign players that can are prone to cyber snooping.
Most of the Internet-based instant messaging applications being widely used on mobile phones don't have servers located in the country.
