Access Banned Torrent and Video Sites in India
By on May 17th, 2012

The Indian governments Department of Telecom (DOT) recently notified ISPs to block several torrent and video websites such as Pirate Bay, ExtraTorrent, KickAss Torrent, Vimeo, Pastebin and more to curb piracy. ISPs like Reliance and Airtel have already started blocking those websites.

In reply to those blocks, the famous group Anonymous has attacked several Indian government websites and taken them down. While the attacks continue, several users in India are still looking to access the websites but are seeing a message “This site has been blocked as per instructions from Department of Telecom (DOT)”.

If you are someone who is looking to access those torrent and video sites in India, you can still do it through several means. As I had stated earlier you can easily access blocked websites using proxy servers, you will find several proxy servers in our earlier guide on how to access blocked website.

Additionally, you can also access those websites using services like OpenDNS and Google DNS. See our guide on How to use Google Public DNS on Windows 7 and Windows XP or use a Google DNS helper to automatically change to Google DNS. If you are in India, you can use a DNS proxy website like http://dnetproxy.appspot.com/ as well.

If you are still not able to access those torrent websites, you could always try and use the site operator in Google search to directly search those websites and view their cached copies.

If you have any other means to access those websites, please feel free to leave a comment.

    is there a way to play videos using the proxy server mentioned in this article, i’m having issues playing video. this pathetic ban has really ruined the day for me. i love vimeo… this censorship is just unacceptable.

    • http://keithdsouza.com Keith Dsouza

      @PC you can watch the videos on Vimeo using the DNet Proxy link provided in the article

      • PC

        hmm… strange. i’ve tried playing a few videos. but the video just wont start. i press play, but it stays static. am i doing something wrong?

        • http://keithdsouza.com Keith Dsouza

          @PC – If the proxy does not work for Vimeo videos, try using Google DNS or Open DNS to access those websites

        Hi Kieth. The DNet Proxy works really well. Thanks for the info. I feel sorry that India is going for censorship. I doest feel like a democracy any more. It just shows what money and power can do. I wish they spent 10% of that money helping the poor people in our conunty.. Thanks Akshay

    Indian government often behaves like authoritarian governemnts like China and Cuba. They will play with this game for a while and will be berated left and right. Then they will feel apologetic and allow everything. Funny though it is, the web-ignorant judges at different levels play into the hands of the government, or are influenced by what government says, and deliver obscurantist judgements. They too learn when the Supreme Court reverses their views.
    In the meantime, people will be encouraged to use the tricks as given in this post. Whither ban?
