countries like that have strange "security" laws... probably to comply with that for some weird reason

India had a problem with blackberry before because of blackberry's encryption.. I think blackberry caved but I can't remember.

Because there is rising fear within population of data theft from Chinese apps -cough *Mi* cough- and there were demands for making these things locally available for government analysis to avoid/stop such acts.

I guess they have managed to legally expanded their reach and made other country origin software owners use Indian government servers as well. A perfectly fine demand and law, now next step would be to actually have proper/capable security system for our government servers

You can blame this on bullocks HR policies recruiting/rejecting people for silly reasons, 99% on paper might not guarantee more capacity in practicals compared to a guy who only has 80% -shots fired-
