Over the weekend, the Indian government stirred up quite controversy by asking Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block 857 Porn websites . The complete list has now been leaked by the Centre of Internet & Society (CIS), telling us exactly which sites won’t be accessible to Internet users in India anymore.

The list includes all the major porn websites from India and abroad. The Department of Telecom issued this directive on grounds of morality and decency, claiming powers under section 79(3)(b) of the Information Technology Act.

According to the IT Act,  the government can take the initiative to disable access to any website if it ‘is being used to commit the unlawful act’.

The section reads:
79. INTERMEDIARIES NOT TO BE LIABLE IN CERTAIN CASES
(1) Notwithstanding anything contained in any law for the time being in force but subject to the provisions of sub-sections (2) and (3), an intermediary shall not be liable for any third party information, data, or communication link made available or hasted by him.

(3) The provisions of sub-section (1) shall not apply if—
(b) upon receiving actual knowledge, or on being notified by the appropriate Government or its agency that any information, data or communication link residing in or connected to a computer resource controlled by the intermediary is being used to commit the unlawful act, the intermediary fails to expeditiously remove or disable access to that material on that resource without vitiating the evidence in any manner.

The CIS in an April 2015 report also found that the procedure for blocking online content in India remains opaque and that there is an urgent need of transparency measures.

Recently, the government had tried to ban 32 websites including Dailymotion, Imgur, Vimeo and Github without any prior information. There are numerous easy ways to access blocked websites even after they are banned,

Here’s the full leaked list of the 857 porn websites being blocked in India by the DoT:
