India backs off on Blackberry ban threat

India has followed the United Arab Emirates in backing off from a threat to ban popular services on Blackberry devices, amid growing global concern over access to encrypted information.

The Ministry of Home Affairs said Friday that Research in Motion Ltd., the Canadian maker of the smart phones, has agreed to an interim arrangement for lawful interception of Blackberry messenger services — an instant messaging application — and pledged to provide a final solution by January.

“Accordingly, the … services will continue to be available,” the ministry said in a statement.

Citing national security concerns, India had threatened to ban corporate e-mail and messenger services by August if Research in Motion didn’t come up with a way for the government to monitor them. It then extended the deadline to October. It remains unclear what solution the parties may have reached over encrypted corporate e-mails.
