  1. Varanasi in India is installing 3,000 CCTV cameras with automated facial recognition tech at the city’s crossings. From mandatory face masks and temperature checks, to socially distant holiday seasons, 2020 has upended our lives in the most haunting way. It’s also meant that governments across the world could introduce intrusive surveillance technology into our daily lives in the name of public health. In China, the government has been tracking its citizens by monitoring their smartphones. Meanwhile, countries like Singapore and India have been using a con
  2. Bloomberg) -- India entered an unprecedented recession with the economy contracting in the three months through September due to the lingering effects of lockdowns to contain the Covid-19 outbreak.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed one of the world’s strictest lockdowns in March, sapping

The CCI rejects Google's claims regarding being a m
  4. The COVID-19 outreach is turning out to be not only health, social, and economic hazard but also a cybersecurity crisis. The pandemic has presented new challenges for businesses in the areas of remote collaboration and business continuity. With increased remote working for better business continuity, employees are using numerous Internet tools.

  6. This article has been updated with a comment from Facebook. The governments of seven countries are calling on Facebook and other tech firms to do the technically impossible - to weaken encryption by giving law enforcement access to messages, whilst not reducing user safety. The governments of the U.S., U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India and Japan have issued the joint statement which pleads with Facebook specifically, as well as other tech firms, to drop “end-to-end encryption policies which erode the public’s safety online”. The govern
  7. Plex has failed in its initial legal action to prevent new streaming service Zee Plex from using the word 'Plex' in its branding. The High Court in Bombay found that low domestic sales for Plex, a fundamental difference in services offered by the parties, plus no evidence of "passing off" or anticipated injuries all went against Plex. Early September, Indian media company Zee Entertainment Enterprises revealed it would soon launch a brand new streaming service with the aim of premiering blockbuster movies directly to people’s homes, partly to combat piracy.

  13. India is days away from officially unveiling what will be the world's tallest statue, standing at an incredible 182 metres tall. Dubbed The Statue of Unity, it is modelled after Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was a key figure in the struggle for Indian independence from British colonial rule in the 1940s. Located alongside the Narmada River in Gujarat, on the western coast of India, it is nearly 30 metres taller than the current record holder — the Spring Temple Buddha in China — and almost double the height of the Statue of Liberty. The project,
  14. The report also recognises India as one of the top 10 improvers in this year’s assessment, for the second successive time. India is the only large country this year to have achieved such a significant shift. India leapfrogged to the 77th rank in the World Bank's latest Ease of Doing Business rankings, jumping 23 notches from last year, a news that is likely to bring cheer for the Narendra Modi-government that is caught in an apparent turf battle with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The report also recognises India as one of the top 10 improvers in this year
  15. Another security lapse involving India's national identity system A lapse in security has led to the leaking of over a hundred thousand Aadhaar numbers, TechCrunch can reveal. One of the web systems used to record attendance of government workers for the Indian state of Jharkhand was left exposed and without a password as far back as 2014, allowing anyone access to names, job titles, and partial phone numbers on 166,000 workers as of the time of writing.

  17. LUCKNOW: When Ashutosh, 24, approached an online agency for a home-tuition job, he was conned into a contract and whisked into a dim-lit room surrounded by women and asked to do body massage. Three others also fell victim to this online fraud. In another bizarre case, Preeti Singh, 38, employed with a bio-fertilizer firm, received an email on resignations of top executives, firm’s bankruptcy details and new products in the pipeline. Later, it was found that mail accounts of the honchos were hacked. These cases are a window to the sudden spurt in cybercrime in 2018 in the city

This had to be done within 24 hours,
  20. Reliance Jio, the third largest mobile carrier in India, is blocking access to several proxy and VPN sites that allow users to anonymously browse the web and sidestep internet service providers’ content restrictions online. Quartz reported the incident today, following reports from several Redditors in a thread from last week. That’s worrying, because it indicates that Jio – which claims to have 250 million subscribers (PDF) and offers some of the cheapest data plans in the world – is in violation of net neutrality principles that state that ISPs should treat all online traffic equ
  21. The government ID database, Aadhaar, became a victim to multiple data breaches which are reported to have compromised the database of 1.1 billion citizens of the country who were registered.

The findings of the World Economic Forum's 14th edition of Global Risks Report 2019, stated the risks to which Environmental degra
  22. A new advertisement for Surf Excel detergent, which shows a girl dropping her Muslim friend at a mosque to pray on Holi, has drawn a huge amount of flak on social media platforms as being anti-Hindu. And, apart from Facebook and Twitter, the keyboard nationalists have also taken to showing their displeasure by review-bombing Excel on the Google Play store. Not Surf Excel though—the negative reviews are turning up on Microsoft Excel. As of now, the number of negative reviews are still pretty low—but the controversy has only just started to brew, and this could well grow with t
