The Indian government today reported that it had issued a notice to the Internet super-giant Google for wronly depicting its maps bordering Pakistan. The government said that the maps depicted a disputed state called Kashmir as part of Pakistan.


A government spokesman in a statement said, “Any wrongful depiction of the Indian map is liable for action under the Inida Information Technology act”. The Indian government has asked Google to fix the issue immediately and has given Google just one week to respond and fix the issue. The spokesman said, “Any delay will result in violation of the law and strict action will be taken against the company”.

The incorrect map was found on Google Insights for Search, a tol which shows the search volume patterns across specific regions. However Google has immediately taken note of the issue and has responded in a statement which said that they were working and the product group has been asked to correct the issue immediately.  

The Indian government’s IT department was reportedly asked to survey all such websites that show inaccurate maps of the country.

One thought on “Indian Government now Issues Notice to Google!”
  1. Govt. took a useless and foolish step by sending such notice, it is like kicking its own back. If google or yahoo blocks its transmission in India, spending a single working will become worse than ever. We want google so much that we donated to Wikipedia so it can continue its service to us.
    Govt has a lot of better works to do. Govt has never dared to take a single strict step for controlling the OVERGROWING POPULATION, which is going to be the worse headache in near 50 years; or against the CORRUPTION which is stealing our OWN money.
    And in this matter, instead if blaming google or yahoo, govt should blame those users of India who are posting the unwanted videos or pictures.
    Instead of banning google, if google ban us, all Indians will be in big problem, for which we Indians can BLAME GOVT.
