India Government New Email Policy ban Email services like Yahoo Gmail

India Government New Email Policy  ban Email services like Yahoo Gmail

Media reported that Indian government may ban email services such as Gmail and Yahoo for official communications by the end of this year to safeguard its critical and sensitive data.

J. Satyanarayana, Secretary, Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) told to media that E-mail policy of the Government of India, as this will be called, is almost ready and we are taking views from other ministries on this. Our effort will be to operationalise the policy by mid or end-December,”

The policy would protect the maximum amount of critical data from the Government’s database and it would also aim to make it mandatory for Government offices to communicate only on the NIC (nic.in) platform instead of them using foreign companies’ services such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail or Rediff.

The policy is also expected to cover around six-lakh Central and State Government employees for using the email service provided by NIC.
This will include integrating the e-mails with cloud computing so that official data can be saved on a cloud platform, which can then be easily shared with the concerned ministries and departments

Why government is planning the email policy?

Reason is privacy and protecting Indian government data

For this policy implementation government will spend around Rs 50-100 crore (over a time period)

Do you think 100 Crore email scam in making?

In India projects start with 1 Crore and in the end result is 10 to 50 times more expenses on one or other excuse
