The VPN controvery continues to rage. In a fresh directive, the government has reportedly barred its employees from using third-party virtual private networks (VPN) and anonymisation services offered by companies such as NordVPN, ExpressVPN, Surfshark and Tor.

The directive comes days after after these VPN service providers threatened to remove their servers from India in protest against the new rules announced by India's cyber security agency.
