New Delhi: The Government plans to take possession of the server and other infrastructure placed by BlackBerry in Mumbai to test the solution offered by the smartphone maker for legal interception of Internet communication.



According to an internal note of Telecom Ministry, prepared after testing the interception of various services of BlackBerry by central security agencies, it was recommended to “initiate a process to take over the possession of BlackBerry infrastructure created at Mumbai for which a suitable agreement may be entered between Department of Telecommunication and Canada-based BlackBerry, manufacturer of the smart phone.



After initially being reluctant in sharing information, BlackBerry has now been complying with the requirements of the government to ensure that all its services are intercepted in readable format and in real time, as and when required by the security agencies.



Giving details of the findings of the tests carried out, the security agencies said there was an urgent need for decrypting the internet browsing services being offered on the smartphone by April this year as the BlackBerry team had been able to provide only a temporary solution to this.
