Govt. to issue order prohibiting govt. staff using social network at office.

The central government Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that it will issue an advisory prohibiting government employees from accessing social networking websites through officials systems and networks.

A division bench of Acting Chief Justice B.D. Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul asked the centre to immediately issue an advisory prohibiting public servants, who already have an official e-mail account, from using external services.

The central government in its affidavit also stated that it has proposed another policy "Policy on Acceptable Use of IT Resources of Government of India" that lays down the guidelines with respect to use of all T resources.
