India TV News Desk [Updated:17 Feb 2013, 18:59:30]

New Delhi, Feb 17: The Department of Telecommunications  on Thursday issued instructions to Internet Service Licensees to block access to 78 URLs from India, of whom 73 web addresses were related to the educational institution IIPM. 




The order was signed by Subodh Saxena of the DoT. Surprisingly, the  webpage of University Grants Commission,  featuring a UGC notice pointing towards the unrecognized status of IIPM was also  ordered to be blocked.

The web pages blocked include URLs of news portals like Outlook, Careers360, The Times of India, FirstPost, Rediff, The Indian Express, The Economic Times, MensXP, The Wall Street Journal, The Caravan Magazine, whose reports were related to IIPM. 

The directive was issued on the basis of an order from a Gwalior court, said Gulshan Rai, director general of CERT-In (Computer Emergency Response Team-India). 

IIPM director Arindam Chaudhuri welcomed the blocking of URLs saying: "I'm glad that the court has ordered the removal of those links."

The move evoked strong protests on Twitter and Facebook, with netizens describing this as a gag on freedom of expression. 

It also provoked a strong response from MoS Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor, who wrote to MoS Telecom Milind Deora asking him to remove the block on the UGC link for the benefit of student community. 

Following, according to Medianama,  are the URLs blocked by the Dept of Telecommunications:
