The Government of India will oppose ICANN’s (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) decision about approving .xxx suffix for adult content websites as it goes against the Information Technology (IT) Act and Indian laws. However, the Ministry of Information and Technology, Government of India has said that it would proceed on a case to case basis on the issue of allowing such websites to provide access under the .in and .com domain.

“India along with many other countries from the Middle East and Indonesia opposed the grant of the domain in the first place, and we would proceed to block the whole domain, as it goes against the IT Act and Indian laws. Though some people have said that segregation is better, and some countries allow it. But for other nations transmission and direct distribution of such content goes against their moral and culture,” a senior official at the ministry of IT has said.
