RIM Might Set Up Server in India

Following the Indian Home Ministry and RIM security rift, earlier it was falsely reported that RIM had agreed to let Indian Government monitor BlackBerry service.

However, RIM failed to comment whether they agreed to it. Now, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) may ask Research in Motion (RIM), the manufacturer of BlackBerry, to set up a server in India as it has agreed in Saudi Arabia to help intercept the data on its phones.

RIM has nearly 1 million BlackBerry users in India and if it fails to deliver what the Indian Government wants, Indian Government might have to ban Blackberry services like in Saudi Arabia.
