    Google dips into CSR budget, ties up with Election Commission for voters’ registration

    Google dips into CSR budget, ties up with Election Commission for voters’ registration - The Times of India


    :frusty::frusty: After all the revelations, our awesome EC still doesnt get it. Precious data will be given for free, and of course it's part of "CSR" funds, which are probably funded by the NSA! Plus they are also thinking about storing results using the same companies.

    These guys...

    EC should have utilized Indian IT resources instead.

    :scared2: why are the govt agencies keen on imports

    I don't understand!!! All the IT work is outsorced from west to India, and here the EC of India is outsourcing to west?

    It's actually babudom at work. The top EC officers wanted to go to US on vacation, so they arranged it.

    Google is very diligent about keeping its data safe from Us government spying. They make all effort to ensure that safety. How far they will be successful is a different matter.

    Google is gathering information from all the fields: market, geographic, genetics, demographic etc. We can only hope that all these information not get misused.

    ^I read this news today morning. It is a good decision to abandon the plan with Google as NSA could have taken advantage of it.
