Blackberry gets 60-day India ban reprieve

India has said it will delay a ban on Blackberry devices for 60 days while it reviews proposals from the gadget’s maker, Research in Motion (RIM).

A ban had been threatened from Tuesday, as India said its security services needed greater access to encrypted services.

It wants the ability to monitor secure e-mail and instant messaging services provided by the firm.

RIM has said it will support the country’s need for “lawful access”.

But it maintains that it does not do “specific deals” with countries.

The firm said earlier that it had offered to “lead an industry forum focused on supporting the lawful access needs of law enforcement agencies”.

It said that the forum – which would include other telecoms firms – would work with the Indian government to develop “policies and processes aimed at preventing the misuse of strong encryption technologies”.
