    I just read that the Times of India has obtained ICANN accreditation for .com, .net, .info and .org domains.

    Source: Times Internet appointed domain registrar

    I don't see Times of India on the list of accredited registrars for .IN domains. Therefore, I assume TIL is just a reseller with regard to Indian domains. If so, I wouldn't be surprised if TIL also applies to become an accredited .IN registrar...

    I think that ICANN accreditation can be used to get accreditation with NIXI. So it may well be their next step.

    Unfortunately, TOI /IndiaTimes is one of the worst sites I have visited. Before the advent of pop-up blockers, a visit to the site would require you to click atleast 5 time before you can view the page. They have so many ads that they can be easily mistaken for a MFA (Made For Ads) site. With such a reputation, I would keep away from them.

    I think Times of India is a big organization and have not any issue regarding to ICANN and NIXI.
