A customer walks into a BlackBerry store in Mumbai
India's telecommunications ministry has rejected a solution offered by Research In Motion for its BlackBerry corporate email services, and it has not been able to access chats on the messenger service either, the Economic Times reported on Friday.
The paper cited an internal note from the ministry saying security agencies have been unable to intercept or monitor secure email communication in readable format. The paper also said law enforcement agencies have failed to intercept chats on the BlackBerry Messenger platform.
Last week a government source told Reuters that India and RIM had hit technical glitches in their talks on access to corporate email, but access to the messenger services was satisfactory.

India's exports rose for the tenth straight month in August, growing an annual 22.5 per cent to $16.64 billion, government data on Friday showed.
Imports for the month rose 32.2 per cent to $29.7 billion, widening the country's trade deficit to $13.04 billion.
Exports during the April-August period rose 28.6 per cent to $85.27 billion.
Asia's third-largest economy is targeting close to 15 per cent export growth in the current fiscal year, following a drop of 4.7 per cent in the 2009/10 fiscal year as the global financial crisis-led slowdown crimped demand.
The August trade deficit has widened to a 23-month high and India's trade secretary has raised his projection for the full-year figure, but said the bulging deficit was not yet a problem and could be financed.

A view of the Commonwealth Games village in New Delhi, September 16, 2010. Emaar MGF, the builder of the Games village, plans to launch an IPO by December to raise up to Rs 1600 crore

"The issue size has been lowered keeping in view the existing fund requirements," a company spokeswoman said in the statement, but gave no details of the size or when the sale would happen.
Engineers attend to calls from abroad inside a call center in Gurgaon
Small and mid-cap IT companies may see margin pressures easing by the year-end on lower attrition rates as firms beef up campus placements, gradually reducing dependence on lateral hires.
Mid-caps such as Hexaware Technologies, KPIT Cummins Infosystems, Zensar Technologies and MphasiS had resumed campus visits earlier in the year and have been building a pool of trained professionals.
"May be by the December quarter attrition should come down to a normalised level," Angel Broking analyst Srishti Anand said. "So that would also ease the pressure from margins, because their salary, general and administrative expenses should start getting normalised."
