New Delhi: The Union Home Ministry has proposed setting up a
communications monitoring facility in all state capitals to monitor
and intercept suspicious telephonic conversations.
The special unit under the Police Department will have the facilities
to monitor Voice Calls, SMS and MMS, GPRS and fax communications on
landlines, CDMA and GSM networks.
The move is a part of the Intelligence Bureau scheme to modernise the
Special Branches of police in the states.
"One of the requirements is the setting up of a Telephone Call
Interception System (TCIS) in each service provider, which has been
licensed for the state to legally monitor the calls as and when
required," a draft proposal said.
The TCIS is needed in 30 locations all over India, in each state and
UT headquarters, the draft proposal in this regard said.
Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of truth. - Mohandas Gandhi
