India Plans to set up a High-Security Snoop-Proof Phone Network For Top Bureaucrats And Ministers

The government of India has plans to set up a snoop-proof phone network that can be used by top government officials and ministers. This high security phone network will be reportedly used by ministers and top government officers from their offices and homes. However, it is also noteworthy that this new phone network will finally substitute the RAX (Restricted Area Exchange) phones which are presently being used by officers and ministers.

As per revealed by government sources, a pilot project, which was carried out in May, has disclosed some technical malfunctions and these include the defencelessness of such an existing network to snooping or bugging attacks by off-air equipments. Thereafter it was decided that there was an urgent need to enhance the security of the system.

News sources reveal that there is significant worry in government circles regarding reports of snooping of BJP leaders by America’s National Security Agency and the supposed snooping act carried out at Union minister Nitin Gadkari’s residence.

According to a latest disclosure, new rules are put in place to control the electronic sweeping of the homes and offices of top ministers and bureaucrats. It is very likely that jammers will be set up in some of the buildings. A senior officer from the Intelligence department states that a few private players from within the country and foreign agencies might also be involved in prying.

Sources disclose that as soon as the new network is set up, the Military Intelligence, Research and Analysis Wing and the Intelligence Bureau will start using it.
