The government told a three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra that it has asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to consider installation of jammers in schools to block access to child pornographic content.
Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand told the bench, also comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and MM Shantanagoudar that it is not possible to install jammers in school buses.
"We are coming out with steps which will deal with the situation in its entirety," she told the bench.
"Jammers in school buses are not possible," Ms Anand said, adding that the "government has asked the CBSE to consider whether jammers can be installed in schools to curb access to such websites."
The court has asked the Centre to file a status report within two days.
The Supreme Court was hearing a petition which has sought direction to the Centre to take appropriate steps to curb the menace of child pornography across the country.
