Regulation of Networking Sites

Government had held discussions with social networking sites and brought to notice of social networking sites that many objectionable content appearing on the sites may lead to law and order problems. The social networking sites were requested to take appropriate steps in line with those outlined in the Information Technology (Intermediaries Guidelines) Rules, 2000.

Adequate legal provisions are already in place in this regard. Government, on 11.4.2011, has notified Information Technology (Intermediaries guidelines) Rules, 2011 under Section 79 of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Further section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000 empowers Government to issue directions for blocking for public access of any information through any computer resource in the interest of sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States, public order or for preventing incitement to the commission of any cognizable offence relating to these.

India Ready to Launch Cloud Computing Initiative 

Architecture of Indian Cloud Needs to be Customised

The Minister of Communications and IT, Shri Kapil Sibal says India with its vibrant IT industry and adoption of IT in Government, is uniquely positioned to immensely benefit from cloud computing. Shri Sibal was delivering the keynote address at the day-long Open House on “India as a Hub for Cloud Services” held in New Delhi today, organised by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DietY). Shri Sibal said that Cloud is likely to unleash new growth opportunities for Indian IT industry and also bring innovations in the way IT solutions and services are delivered. He said the Government is ready to launch cloud computing initiative and added that with their modest resources and technology, medium and small sector industry needs the clouds more than anybody else. He said that keeping in mind the economic and cultural context, the architecture of Indian clouds will have to be different, frugal and innovative. 

Addressing the Open House, Shri Sachin Pilot, the Minister of State for Communications and IT said that with 120 million internet users and with net connectivity slowing spreading to Panchayats, this is the right time for India to develop cloud services. Shri Pilot said content creation would have to be in Indian languages if the benefits of cloud services are to reach the common man. He said the issues of data vulnerability, privacy laws, regulatosry oversight and network security need to be addressed. 

The Open House was attended by the representatives from the industry, Government and other stake holders. 

The cloud is a shared pool of configurable resources categorised by on-demand self-service, resource pooling, elasticity and measurable service levels. While developing the cloud computing, the Cloud Service Providers (CSP) would have to provide visibility into data location, commitment to well defined SLAs, provide migration support and aim at interoperability. The responsibility on the Government is to reduce compliance burden, establish cloud security standards, create a system of certification of Cloud Service Providers and develop cross-border laws and taxation principles.
