The Directorate Of Signal Intelligence(For service areas of North East,Jammu & Kashmir and Assam only),Commissioner Of Delhi Police and Enforcement Directorate are also other central agencies who will be doing all the monitoring.

If the subscribers fail to go by the authorized rule,they will be imprisoned for seven years and also will be fined.

This order has been given under Act 69(1) of Information Technology,2000 which is meant to protect the citizens from cyber crime. The act states that the Indian government has every right to monitor data traffic, if it secures the integrity of the nation.

It clearly states “interest of the sovereignty or integrity of India,defense of India,security of the state,friendly relations with foreign states or public order or for preventing incitement to the commission of any cognizable offence relating to above or for investigation of any offence”.

Thus this is an initiative to make India safe in terms of cyber crime and activities against the law.
