Strange whois for an .in name

I was checking the whos for a name at registry.in, and strangely the whois said the name had expired in February 2009. But its status was still "OK".

Maybe if it was a reserved name/owned by the registry I could understand it, but this one seems to be owned by an .in registrar.

Does anyone know if .in registrars can simply keep domains that have already expired?

Yes, this is because the particular registrar has closed down its operation and due that these domains are resolving but renewal actions are not placed by registrar.

.In registry is resolving this case and very soon same will be ok.

does that mean , domains registered @innames will not be deleted by registry , what about renewals ? not required if the registrar quits the game;):p

same with nationalgeographic.co.in

No Need to Panic !

First to clear that domains are regitered by Registrar called Magnum International not the innames.

Whenever registrar go our of business domains are automatically renewed by registry and whenever new registrar takes over , all charges paid by them to registry for renewal of domains is recover from registrarnt of domain.

As per the policy of the registry registrant never suffers in these situations they will simply require to transfer the domain names whenever new registrar takes over.

currently .IN registry is in process of clearing all this , rest assured everything will be fine.

We are trying to takeover the particular registrar and if current registrant will not pay for these domains renewal then we will transfer these names to Mitsu's regular customers by charging them our cost.
