As more and more internet service providers in India and telcos ban access to porn sites in the country, people are turning to every avenue to scratch the porn itch. Indians are searching for porn on other videos platforms.

YouTube is clearly the most popular videos site in the world and it too has seen a huge spike in searches for porn-related terms, presumably by those who do not wish to get into the hassles of using a VPN.

By analyzing YouTube trends, we can see that the government’s expectation that people will give up porn is totally mistaken. In fact, the search for such videos in the mainstream has only risen.

The frequency of searches for some of the common porn-related terms have shot up by approximately 200 percent or so over the past month, seeing a huge jump in the past 10 days, starting October 20, when the ban started trickling in, starting with Reliance Jio.

Searches on YouTube related to popular porn websites such as Pornhub and Xvideos surged by almost 400 percent. We tried 10 of the more popular search terms that we could find based on search trends on top porn websites to see how these terms have grown on Youtube over the last 30 days:

 

Indians searching for porn on other videos platforms after ban puts on Porn sites in India:

 

* Xvideos – 370%
* Pornhub – 357%
* Indian sex videos – 238%
* Xnxx – 227%
* Desi sex – 222%
* Porn – 204%
* Indian sex – 185%
* Mallu sex – 182%
* Sex scene – 147%
* Bollywood Sex – 144%

Yes, YouTube is not the best place to look for porn, but it’s something in the face of nothing. Secondly, this could become a bigger issue for Youtube as it does not have a very good record of keeping questionable content off its platform, which has often landed it in hot soup with privacy experts.

It’s quite evident that the porn ban which the Department of Telecommunication has asked telcos to enforce, following the orders of the Uttarakhand High Court has not had any effect on people wanting to watch porn online. Meanwhile, more informed users are taking the route of using VPN services to watch porn, easily bypassing the blocking.

It is interesting to notice that Indian government should need a better solution than this feeble implementation, and perhaps the government needs to have a rethink about what exactly a porn ban can solve as people seem to be just as keen to watch these videos.

It’s not exactly curing the population of its itch for porn, so perhaps it would be better to unblock these sites, and look at sex education for a solution.

Samsung rapped for not passing GST benefits to consumers

Published

The Directorate General of Anti-Profiteering (DGAP) has served a notice on technology major Samsung India for allegedly not passing on the benefits of GST reduction to its customers and in turn making undue profits, sources said.

The notice, sources said, was served on the basis of a complaint that alleged the company was not tranferring the rate cut in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on television sets to the consumers.

In December, the GST Council reduced the tax rate on televisions with screen sizes of up to 32 inches to 18 per cent from 28 per cent, which came into effect on January 1, 2019. Earlier, only the television sets with screens up to 26 inches were in the 18 per cent tax slab.

The anti-profiteering body, which functions under the GST Council, has also sought documents of sales made by the company.

A Samsung India spokesperson said: “Samsung reduced its sales price according to GST reduction with effect from January 1, 2019. We are cooperating with DGAP on this matter.”

Sources said the complaint refers to only one of the company television models and that the company will reply to the notice soon.

Non-transmission of rate cuts to consumers violates Section 171 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act which mandates that any reduction in tax rates on goods and services or benefits of input tax credit should be passed on to customers through reduction in prices.

The duty of the anti-profiteering agency is to conduct investigation and collect evidence necessary to determine whether the benefit of reduction in the rate of tax on any goods or services has been passed on to the recipient by way of commensurate reduction in prices, in terms of Section 171 of the CGST Act, 2017.

Several companies have faced action from the anti-profiteering body over numerous complaints filed by consumers.
