NEW DELHI: Handset giant Nokia on Thursday announced the installation of a server in India to enable security agencies lawfully intercept its email and messenger services, said a PTI report, which said the move which may force BlackBerry to follow suite.


Nokia India Vice President and MD D Shivakumar called on Home Secretary G K Pillai on Thursday and handed over the letter, saying the company has conformed with all requirements suggested by the law enforcement agencies, the report added.

The company, however, assured its customers that their privacy would be protected, even while fulfilling public responsibility and legal obligations.

"As a responsible corporate citizen, we follow all local laws and regulations that are required by the government authorities," it added.
