India demands Real time monitoring on Indian Gmail & Yahoo Emails Looks like the Government Of India is really after the digital communication in India. Internet content providers Yahoo, Gmail and others would be asked to route all emails accesed in India through the country even if the mail account is registered outside the country. In a written statement filed in a civil court here, Yahoo India has dubbed a suit filed against it and several other websites alleging that they hosted objectionable content as " motivated " and an " abuse of the process of law ." The Government Of India wants that all the email accessed by Indians should route through servers physically located in India even if the email account was created outside India. Government is ensuring that the security agencies will have direct, real-time access to the digital communication among Indians. The need for this was felt after security agencies failed to access accounts of suspected terrorists of Indian Mujahid
