New Delhi : The government of India will bans the Gmail and third-party mail service that has using for official work in offices. They are directed to use only  National Informatics Centre (NIC) prescribed email services for communication.

According to reports, The government can now block content which it deems counterproductive to working efficiency of bureaucrats, monitor their online activities and delete history and past emails, upon intimation to the user. 

This covers all central government employees, employees of those state governments/UTs which use email services of the Centre and those states that choose to adopt this in future.

In addition, to prevent slacking off at jobs, the move comes with government concerns over foreign servers of Gmail and Yahoo and instances of US snooping revealed by Snowden recently, which can become some serious liabilities for the Government.

The e-mail services provided by other service providers shall not be used for any official communication," the notification says. 

These notified policies will cover all central government employees, employees of those state governments/UTs which use email services of the Centre and those states that choose to adopt this in future. 

The step was in the offing for long given the government's concern over foreign servers of Gmail and Yahoo and instances of US snooping.
