Research In Motion, maker of BlackBerry, will hold talks with India's government next week on Tuesday, to resolve India's security concerns, in which the country alleges it can't readily monitor BlackBerry services, while many emails sent through BlackBerry devices are not easily traceable.
India's Ministry of Telecommunications wrote to Research In Motion requesting it to install servers in India to help security agencies monitor BlackBerry services in an easier manner.
The Indian government has held several meetings with RIM and mobile operators ever since security officials became concerned about not being able to monitor the services offered on the BlackBerry.
Service providers currently offering BlackBerry services in India include Vodafone, BPL Mobile, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Communications.
Satchit Gayakwad, RIM's spokesman for India, said BlackBerry's worldwide user base increased to 14 million by the end of March compared to 12 million in December.
