    Yes they can, as it uses the NIB (National Internet Backbone) based communication channel.

    Even BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) which is not based on the NIB is monitored. You might remember that a few years back DOT threatened RIM to close down its services if they do not provide them with a monitoring service for BBM.

    Think of it on a positive note... For a terrorist and corruption hit country like India, this is one of the best news we had recently. It will help CBI, IB and RAW immensely.

    Just think... as soon as Yasin Malik calls up Hafiz Saeed to get more lashkars into Kashmir, IB, MI, RAW, all immediately gets informed about it and finally Yasin Malik can be jailed.

    I wont mind them monitoring everything as long as this activity is used against terrorists and anti nationals or for national security, other then that it will be abuse of this system.

    actually on the next every key type can be trace.

    Hate to live in police state, but now a days it is more of necessity specially against terrorists.

    We should have the system where in all the flight, trains and other national transport passengers can be tracked and cameras with face recognition at entry and exit points. Wont mind having cameras all round us, in these difficult times. It also helps in reducing crime and deter criminals and track them..

    with Adhar they have started an effort, even bank accounts are getting connected. In 5-10 years govt will have accesses to huge data.

    Actually, I will be comfortable if they interview based on the plays.:cool2: . I can ace it.
    Sarkari jab is a dream, its more like a folktale.

    I think even if they are monitoring the calls, may be its more of based on certain keywords and such.
    If you describe your friendly neighbourhood girl as a 'bomb', then you are sure gonna get monitored. Misspelled boomb also will get monitored,so is the conversation where you blew your exams.

    Read it somewhere that, the FBI missed the Boston Bomber clue because of the 'mass' of data. Hope GOI is sensible in the way by which they handle the huge data

    In that case, anyone writing on this or any other defence forum will be raided by the NSG, or the Army Para, in full NBC suits. A bomd is probably the least lethal object people talk about here.

    I think @Yusuf was saying it in a general sense, not in your case in particular. For example, one should not call for the assassination of our leaders. That will land the poster in jail.
