Update: CIS India has published a list of the 11 links which the Department of Information Technology has had blocked. Bear in mind that other departments (for example, the Home Ministry) may have also requested blocks. Meanwhile, judging from the comments to this post, some ISPs are still blocking access to the sites mentioned.

Also, the DoT had also denied asking for the block. The 11 links blocked: (a) www.zone.h.org (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (b) http://donotdial100.webs.com (IP 18.104.22.168) (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (c) www.bloggernews.net/124029 (ED: Criticising Zone-H. Looks like a censorship/Freedom of speech issue. Works on MTNL, Delhi) (d) http://www.google.co.in/#h1=en&source=hp&biw=1276&bih=843&=dr+babasaheb+ambedkar+wallpaper&aq=4&aqi=g10&aql=&oq=dr+babas&gs_rfai=&fp=e791fe993fa412ba (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (e) http://www.cinemahd.net/desktop-enhancements/wallpaper/23945-wallpapers-beautiful-girl-wallpaper.html (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (f) http://www.chakpak.com/find/images/kamasutra-hindi-movie (is a Canaan Partners funded website; page blocked by MTNL Delhi) (g) http://www.submitlink.khatana.net/2010/09/jennifer-stano-is-engaged-to.html (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (h) http://www.result.khatana.net/2010/11/im-no-panty-girl-yana-gupta-wardrobe.html (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (i) http://www.facebook.com/pages/l-Hate-Ambedkar/172025102828076 (ED: Redirects to Facebook homepage) (j) www.indybay.org (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) (k) www.arizona.indymedia.org (ED: Blocked by MTNL Delhi) Earlier today: We've just received a response to a Right To Information request that we had filed with India's Department of Information Technology (DIT), seeking information on blocking of information on the Internet in India.
