Block child abuse content by Jul 31: Govt to ISPs
Updated on : 21-04-2017 08:57 AM
The government has directed Internet service providers (ISP) to block distribution and transmission of child sexual abuse content by July 31.



The directive has been issued after the recommendation of an inter-ministerial committee that was constituted to recommend solutions to address the issue of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) following a Supreme Court order.

The panel noted that most of the CSAM is being hosted outside India and the websites or web links to access such unlawful content are dynamic in nature and frequently changing which makes it difficult to block such content.
