"There is no threat from BlackBerry services,'' the country's Telecom Secretary Siddharth Behura told reporters in Delhi on Wednesday. The security agencies have said that the use of BlackBerry devices poses a threat because they could be used for criminal communications.
Though was not clear if the security agencies gave green signal to Blackberrry in India.
Four mobile service providers are offering BlackBerry services in India, and there were fears that they would have to stop offering the service because of the security concerns. However, Behura said in March that while the government was keen on resolving the security issue, there was no question of banning the service.
Telecom Minister A. Raja said in early June that the security issues over BlackBerry are likely to be resolved by the end of the month. It is not clear whether an agreement has been reached by the government and RIM, or whether the government has now changed its stand.
