The Government of India has asked Internet service licensees to block access to 32 URLs including a few popular video platforms like Vimeo and Dailymotion and hosting service Github.

Scans of the notification posted on twitter showed that the same was issued under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000. However, we could not find the notification on the Department of Technology website.

One of the blocked sites, Pastebin.com tweeted that its url was blocked in India. “We are getting many reports about this. The Indian government has blocked us, and right now there is little we can do about it. It has happened in the past, and we got unblocked after some time. For now we recommend using a free proxy service if you are based in India,” it said in a Facebook post.

We could open most of the sites including Vimeo and Github, with the exception of pastebin.com and dailymotion.com.

                  I dont know where you will bring these prosutes. Are they not women? Don't they have any rights? By legalizing the trade, many women from low wage backgrounds will be FORCED into it.As you said educating the youth is the right solution, not legalizing prosution.
