How To make torrent sites work in India!

So we believe most of you are aware that torrent sites are blocked in India and that’s the reason you would have searched up for a way, a workaround to make a torrent site work and hence you have landed on this page. Yesterday, the court ordered to ban all torrent websites in India and ever since, once you open any torrent website such as or or likewise, you receive a message which says “Access to this site has been blocked as per Court Orders”.

In the age of computers and the internet, it is impossible, well, almost impossible to censor data and ‘block’ things. So after a bit of research, which surely didn’t take more than ten minutes, we were able to find the workaround to make torrent sites work in India.

Here is how you do it:

  1. Download Hotspot Shield VPN software from here.
  2. Once you are done downloading the software, tap on the downloaded file and install hotspot shield on your computer.
  3. Once you are finished installing Hotspot Shield, on the bottom right of your screen, hotspot shield will start connecting to create a VPN. If not you will get a window like this:
  4. Tap on the connect icon to connect to the VPN. It will start connecting and the window will appear like this:
  5. Once connected you will get a window like this:
  6. As soon as you will be connected to Hotspot Shield, a new window will open in your browser. Here you will be prompted to select if you want to use Hotspot Shield for free i.e. a couple of ads will pop up here and there while you are connected to it. If you are rich enough you can buy the ad-free version as well. We would recommend you to select the free one though for the ads aren’t annoying.
  7. Once you are done you can open or any equivalent torrent website and it will go from looking like this:
  8.  To working normally just like this:
  9. That’s about it, you can now use any torrent website normally and download the torrent while you are connected using Hotspot Shield.
  10. Download the torrent file you are looking for and after downloading, disconnect hotspot shield from the taskbar of your computer.
  11. Open the torrent file in utorrent or any such equivalent torrent client and you VIOLA! you will be able to download your torrent!
    That’s about it! So happy downloading and enjoy usage of unrestricted torrent websites!

      Again, some ISPs have a descent enough brain of knowing how to block it. They haven’t done it full proof just yet though hence there are work arounds but if they do block them out, VPN is the safest way of being able to use them.

  8. Guys,I am using Asianet broadband from Kerala.I am usimg mturrent also..what the problem is i entered pirate bay using proxy and downloded the torrent file…But its downloding very very slowly.about 0.3kbps etc..:(I dont know whats the problem..I have enjoyed good speed before the bann..pls give any solution.

    • Vidit Chopra says:

      That’s the thing with proxy servers! They slow down the speed. It is really important to get hold of a good proxy server. Most of them are slow. Try using VPN Shield, the method described in the post. It too decreases speed but it is enough to download the torrent in one go.

      • Santhosh Kumar says:


        I’d got 4.5Mb speed in torrents when i connected using VPN Sheild (Asianet Broadband), But thats it, after 2 days it all gone upside down and now when i connect VPN sheld it got frequest disconnects and Torrents are no more working

  9. Not able to download in utorrent

    • Vidit Chopra says:

      Did you Disconnect from VPN after downloading the torrent file? If not, then disconnect and try again. Also, make sure you have downloaded a torrent that has enough seeds to connect to. P2P is all about the number of people seeding a file. Check some other torrent file. This method works!

    I do find it irresistible!
    But is kind of.. often the same in every established…

  11. Will a vpn like from arcvpn provide me with extra security? I’m worried that my information will be stolen.

  12. Just install ZenMate addon in your browser and enjoy.

  13. Thanks a lot, It really worked for me.. lets see how many days it stays like that.. Thanks a lot

  14. Why to take so much trouble? simply google “proxy site”, open the first result, insert in the url box and you are done!
