Torrentz was blocked starting 3 May 2012, in India under orders of the Indian Department of Telecom without any stated reasons or prior warnings. The block was enforced by a number of ISPs, including Reliance Communications, Tikona Digital Networks, Aircel, MTNL, BSNL and Vodafone. Other ISPs however, did not enforce the block, such as You Broadband and Hathway. The ban was lifted after a few days. As of 17 May 2012 the Site has been blocked with the error message "Access to this site has been blocked as per Court Orders...... But perhaps they don't know the word PROXY ... lol..
