The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is looking to finalise the norms for interception and monitoring of phone calls and messages by August end, according to reports. An official source said that the body is reportedly working on making two amendments to the Indian Telegraph Act – for intercepting and monitoring through the government’s Central Monitoring System (CMS) and collecting, storing and analysing message pertaining to information of any nature by the Telegraph Authority.

Using the Central Monitoring System, officials with the National Investigation Agency or tax officials will have access to "every byte of communication". It had been reported in the past too that while the system could play a big role in ensuring better security in the country, it was already giving sleepless nights to those championing the cause of privacy and Internet freedom in the country.
