India to ban use of Gmail for gov't workers citing concerns of U.S. snooping

The Indian government says that it plans to ban its employees from using American email clients like Gmail in light of revelations of massive US surveillance programs.

The move is intended to protect confidential government information from US intelligence agencies who appear to have direct access to servers of major American internet companies.

The government said that it will send a notice soon to about 500,000 employees telling them to use only the email client provided by India's National Informatics Centre.
