Investing in domain names can be risky in India at present, because officials are banning websites with content that exposes frauds of officials and companies. A harmless blog problems.in has been banned in India for allegedly exposing a major online domain, impersonation fraud,though an official notification has not been received by the webmaster from DOT which manages the blog.
Sometime ago, a member on a Forum, Forumcoin, Suny said that he would try to get the website useful blocked and it appears that he has managed to get problems.in banned instead. These officials are not only blocking payment from online money making websites, when the domain investor is trying to increase website revenues using CPM advertising, the website is banned for indian users.

The indian webhosting company claims that they are not facing any problem in accessing the website, the webhosting company could be using a leased line, and hence it is not facing any problem as the ISP ban is only for indian consumers.

Does anyone know if there is an official reason for banning the website, the name of the DOT or government official signing the order and how to get it unbanned ?
