    Did you try resetting your browser, clearing your cache and cookies? Check with your ISP to see if they have issues or any sites blocked? Try a different browser?

    Is this a company or school issued computer? If so, just contact your IT helpdesk or IT admin.

    This seems to be some kinda Network Admin issue, (Probably if it's a work/college network) not your ISP.. unless you've overused your FUP on both Airtel and MTNL

    Although if you exceed FUP on Airtel the page it shows is differrent.

    Edit: OP, what DNS are you using?

    This sounds like an internet filtering software message. Did this happen while you were connected to an office or a university network?
    My university network filter blocks certain websites, such as download/torrent websites, pr0n websites, and most content/media streaming websites. Undoubtedly, they do it to conserve bandwidth first and foremost, but also to comply with copyright policies.
