Every user thinks he or she has all the rights to browse anything on the web using the internet. After all, the information is fed on the web only for the access and benefit of the users, if there was anything wrong in it, the international council of the internet would not approve it for publish. But, due to one or other reason, the Indian Government has banned some websites to access in India. Here is a top guide on how to access to blocked or torrent sites in India.
Following the orders of Indian Government, many ISPs (Internet Service Providers) has blocked some websites including some popular torrents like Torrentz, Kat.cr, The PirateBay, Kickass Torrents, etc. This is a good thing to stop piracy and many other illegal activities like porn, making pirated copies, etc. Everything has pros and cons, so we observe this thing for such blocking of illegal sites too. It’s nice to proscribe it, but simultaneously it is not justified for the genuine user as he won’t be able to use it freely. With some illegal porn sites, some good informative sites like GitHub, PasteBin, etc. are also blocked to access.
Here are some tricks to open blocked websites and to access blocked torrent sites like Kickass Torrents, Kat.cr in India.
Trick 1: Use Proxy
If you are an internet user, then you most probably know what a proxy is. The proxy which is also called a ‘proxy server’ is a gateway between the local network and the internet. When you connect with a proxy, you can access the content you want. There are a number of proxy sites available online which can help you open the blocked sites in India. Remember that proxy is a completely browser-based server, so you cannot use it for non-browser pages or applications which are blocked.
Trick 2: Use VPN service
Unlike a proxy, a VPN (Virtual Private Network) encrypts all your traffic by replacing your current ISP with the virtual location as per your preferences. After accessing or downloading the VPN service or software like hidemyass, hola, cyberghost, etc. you can choose your preferred location from anywhere in the world to access the internet and sites that are blocked in your country or region. Some VPN services are free to use, but they can’t give surety to hide your IP from the ISP or Indian Government, so it is better to use premium version if you will be using it regularly. Today, browsers like Opera gives an inbuilt VPN functionality which lets you access the web without using external software or service. You can try it too.
Trick 3: Use IP
Sometimes, when the government or ISP blocks a site, its IP still can be accessed. So if you can get the IP address of the blocked website, then you can give it a try to access the site.

Some simple changes like HTTP to https can make a difference.
