Govt rethinks, will appeal order on IIPM content [DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India)]
(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) "The government will appeal against the Gwalior district court's order which asked it to block the URLs consisting of content maligning the reputation of business school Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM). "We will appeal against the order as been asked by the minister (Kapil Sibal). The order was passed without DEITY being made a party to it. We were not issued any notice, the order came to us directly and we did not get an opportunity to respond. We will ask the court to vacate the order and will appeal against the order," an IT ministry source said on the basis of anonymity. The matter is to be heard on February 28. Last week the Department of Telecom (DoT) had asked the internet service providers to block access to 78 URLs with 73 consisting of news portals and blogs having content on IIPM and Management (IIPM) and its head Arindam Chaudhuri.
