Asia Bizz: After the search engine giant Google had started the Street View service on the streets of Bangalore in India, it had received a notice to stop the cars from taking pictures due to security reasons. Now the legal experts from Google, Geetanjali Duggal and Venkatesh Hariharan had met some of the BJP political party leaders regarding the matter.

Google had started the service in the month of May this year. A meeting was held, which was led by Ashwath Narayan, who is a member of the legislative council. Earlier, the party had opposed the idea of the Street View.

Hariharan said that they are reviewing the objections and have also started talks with the central government. Even the party has some demands from Google. The party has said that on Google Maps, some of the parts of Arunachal Pradesh are considered as disputed territory, which the party has demanded to be included in India.

Duggal has said that Google in terms of disputed territories follows an internationally accepted practice. Moreover, the party has also said that they do not want the VIP residences to be pictured, as the terrorists might misuse the pictures. Google has been asked to seek permission from the Central Government and then to come back to the state government.
