The names of the apps were issued in two lists. “Ministry of electronics and IT has issued directions for blocking of 35 apps,” DoT said in an order late Tuesday, which ET reviewed. “The details of all these 35 apps, along with their IP addresses and domain names are enclosed.” DoT asked the operators to submit compliance reports immediately, failing which action would be taken.
