The government has barred its employees from using third-party virtual private networks (VPN) and anonymisation services offered by companies such as Nord VPN, ExpressVPN and Tor.

The mandate comes just days after ExpressVPN, Surfshark and NordVPN said they would stop offering their services in the country following a directive by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (Cert-In) on how VPN companies should operate in India.
