"I have made this appeal to representatives of IT industry here, which is considered IT capital of India. Once tech industry migrates to this new identity, it will set a trend for rest to follow in letter and spirit. They need to change domain names of their companies or organisations by registering their Websites or mail IDs only once for identifying themselves with their motherland," Maran says.
"Though we are not making it mandatory, we are coming out with a number of schemes for Indian companies or organisations to make this transition soon. The ministry will shortly come out with an action plan to enable a smooth migration to either .co.in or .in," IT minister explains.
The Indian IT-minister seems to be aware, that it is very bureaucratic in moment to register in-domains. Indian companies need a lot of paperwork in order to get a domain at co.in , .in itself is reserved for Indian providers, not open to all Indian companies. "Foreign companies", explains Hans-Peter Oswald, CEO of ICANN Registrar Secura (https://www.domainregistry.de/in-domain.html), ,,can only register own name at .gen.in."
