India has initially threaten to ban the BlackBerry Messaging service last August and later extended to end of October. It remains unclear what solution did Indian Ministry of Home Affairs and RIM have reached over encrypted corporate e-mails.

RIM, has given no details of the possible agreement that led the India to back off from their October deadlines..

India is now requesting all companies that provide encrypted communications to install servers in the India to make it easier for the government to obtain users’ data. This might affect Gmail provider Google Inc. and Internet phone company Skype SA.
