How to Access Blocked sites in India Legally

About one thousand of websites were recently banned in India. New warning message is now appeared from Internet service providers about the restrictions.

“This URL has been blocked under instructions of a competent Government Authority or in compliance with the orders of a Court of competent jurisdiction. Infringing or abetting infringement of copyright-protected content including under this URL is an offence in law. Ss. 63, 63-A, 65 and 65-A of the Copyright Act, 1957, read with Section 51, prescribe penalties of a prison term of upto 3 years and a fine of upto Rs.3 lakhs. Any person aggrieved by the blocking of this URL may contact the Nodal Officer at xyz@[isp-domain] for details of the blocking order including the case number, court or authority to be approached for grievance redressals. Emails will be answered within two working days. Only enquiries regarding the blocking will be entertained.”

Lots of torrent websites were now blocked in India to prevent film piracy.

“The HC after hearing the plea presented through the producer’s law firm ALMT Legal also directed the ISP to also block such sites within 24 hours of receipt of information on infringement from the film producer,”

TOI reported.

This is not new in India. Such things happened before.

Previously this year the government of the country banned a great number of  ‘Escort Services’ websites. Also last year adult sites were also blocked in India.

Good news that websites that use HTTPS, which is more secure network between a user and the site, aren’t affected because ISPs in India cannot yet block such URLs.

VPN is an encrypted tunnel between your device and vpn server. All data sent via this channel is coded.

VPN masks your IP address and lets you bypass any restrictions from your Internet service provider.
