Indiankanoon.org blocked on multiple Jio connections, reportedly on govt orders

Legal developments website Indian Kanoon (indiankanoon.org) is blocked on multiple Jio connections from different areas and states. When a Twitter user first reported the block, Jio said the wesbite was blocked on a government order and the block is applicable across operators. “In this order government has given a list of sites that need to be blocked and we have complied with the same,” reads Jio customer care’s email to the customer. However, Indiankanoon.org is accessible other CSPs such as Airtel Delhi and Idea Delhi, and ISP Excitel Delhi.

Currently, Indiankanoon is inaccessible on:

  • Jio Assam (verified by MediaNama)
  • Jio Delhi (verified by MediaNama)
  • Jio Karnataka (user reported to MediaNama)
  • Jio Maharashtra (verified by MediaNama)
  • Jio Andhra Pradesh (user reported to MediaNama)

Both users and Indian Kanoon have asked Jio for a copy of the government order which demanded the ban. On connections seen by MediaNama, the Indian Kanoon website would not open and reflect a message stating that the website was being blocked on the DoT’s orders.

The site is accessible on:

  • CSP – Idea Delhi (verified by MediaNama)
  • CSP – Airtel Delhi (verified by MediaNama)
  • CSP – Airtel Bangalore (user reported)
  • ISP – Excitel Delhi (verified by MediaNama)
  • ISP – ACT Fibernet Karanataka (user reported)

Please check if indiakanoon.org is working on your Jio connection, and email me at trisha@medianama.com or tweet to me @trishajalan.

Reddit blocked on multiple services

Last week, Reddit was being blocked by several CSPs and ISPs without specifying any reason. Reddit was blocked on Jio Maharashtra, Punjab, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, and was working on Jio Mumbai and Kolkata. However, Reddit was blocked on several other providers like Vodafone Mumbai, Maharashtra; Kolkata, West Bengal; Bangalore, Karnataka, and ISPs Spectranet Pune and Jio Fiber Kolkata, among others.

Even prior to this, there had been contradicting reports on Reddit working on some Jio connections and not working on some others.
