IT Minister Orders to Block all Escort Services Websites

The IT ministry in India has ordered blocking of all escort services websites in similar effort to block several porn websites in the country.

The ministry has ordered ISPs to immediately block around 240 websites that are offering escort services. Failing to do so would attract action under the IT Rules 2009.

Most Websites that were listed include,,,,, and many others that are presently well-known in the escort world.

ISPs claim that the website blocking would take place in few days. As for now, a number of websites are being blocked by various ISPs, while some are still operative. It will be only a matter of time when citizen again call for lifting the ban, similar to the previous porn ban issue.

On the other hand, there seems to be no stopping these types websites as many of them operate from outside the country where the Indian rules do not apply. And even if they do, they are all geared to spring up with different names (domain names) within a few hours.
