BlackBerry no security threat to India

India's Telecom Ministry does not see any security threat from BlackBerry email services and has no plans to shut the services in the country.

A Reuters report also quoted Telecoms Secretary Siddhartha Behura as saying that 'there is no threat from BlackBerry services.'

The official further said operators did not need the ministry's approval to offer such services.

Security agencies had concerns Research In Motion's popular BlackBerry service could be used by militants to send e-mails that cannot be tracked, and the government wanted RIM to install servers in India to help monitor traffic.
