IB demands mechanism to track internet usage on mobile phones from Telecoms Ministry

The intelligence bureau (IB) has demanded that the telecoms ministry ask mobile phone companies to put mechanisms in place to track internet usage on mobile phones.

The IB is of the view that internet usage on computers where the connectivity is offered via Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are traceable. But the same is not applicable when it comes to browsing on mobile phones as telcos had not set up facilities for real time tracking of websites visited by their customers.
