    I am unable to access any blogspot.com blog since yesterday and now I am getting slight hints that it is being blocked in India by some ISP's?

    Can you access blogspot.com blogs?
    If yes then what is your ISP,if no then also what is your ISP?

    Indian ISPs blocking *.blogspot.com and *.typepad.com blogs

    I've been reading on linux-india irc channels about the recent unaccessibility of Blogspot.com, Typepad.com blogs. It seems that the ministry of IT has ordered such blockage. Several people have reported about the government agency CERT-IN < http://www.cert-in.org.in > behind this blocking, and has issued notices to several indian isps.

    If you are experiencing connection timeouts while visiting blogspot.com blogs then mention here.

    Re: Indian ISPs blocking *.blogspot.com and *.typepad.com blogs

    Not all ISPs have implemented the block. As i can see right now, my blogs are not available on Reliance link at TIFR and Exatt connection at home. However they are available on MTNL connection at office.

    As of now the reported ISPs blocking Blogspot are:
    Reliance, Spectranet, BSNL, Exatt, Bharti

    India blocks Blogger, TypeAd and Geocities blogs and websites

    Source: http://tech.moneycontrol.com/

    Here is a list of Indian ISPs who have already complied with this order.
