BlackBerry maker Research in Motion today offered the government a few solutions to access BlackBerry data, avoiding an immediate ban as the government studies those solutions, Home Ministry said on Monday.

"RIM have made certain proposals for lawful access by law enforcement agencies and these would be operationalised immediately," the Home Ministry said in a statement. "The feasibility of the solutions offered would be assessed thereafter."

The government said it would review the situation and that the Department of Telecommunications would submit its report within the next two months.

Security officials met on Monday to take a final decision on BlackBerry services in the country, a day before an Aug 31 deadline for the firm to give security agencies access to its secure data.
