After RIM now it’s time for Nokia to face the heat from Indian Government. Stating about security concerns, the Department of Telecom (DoT) India has temporary banned Nokia’s Push e-mail services across the country. The Intelligence Bureau of India has notified Indian service providers to avoid the launch of proposed Push / Power Email service till it gets monitoring system in place.

Last year August, BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) was warned and later banned from providing Push email service on due to lack of facility to monitor emails from its mobile devices. Though, government had issues an ultimatum to provide a solution till 31 March 2011, apparently it will take some more time to have control mechanism for such services.

Nokia Messaging offers push email services for Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, Hotmail and Rediff mail. E-mail service is being activated in more than 50% of the E-series phones sold in the country.
