O, no! blogs are still blocked

There is still difficulty in accessing blogs, inspite of the Department of Telecommunication's clear note to the ISPs to block only the offensive websites.

The DoT, according to a press release, is also asking the ISPs why action should not be taken against them for blocking access altogether. There seems to be complete confusion over this issue.

Here's the PIB press release.


  1. My ISP removed the block late yesterday evening :)

  2. I had never had a slight hint or thought that any Govt could ban Blogs.
    Not good.Been in a vacation for a week and did not get to follow up
    any news updates from India.So I was little taken aback by the news.
    Blogs are the drains for amatuer writers.Hope they lift the ban soon.
