This is right from the horses mouth, exclusive news coming in from Anonymous group themselves.
They’ve given the reason: Internet Censorship, this take down comes after the website like Vimeo, PirateBay etc have been blocked by most of the Indian ISP on government request.

They’ve been very quick on this, the blockage started in the morning and within hours we see Government website being taken down by Anonymous.
They’ve named this operation, “MT Operation India” Let’s see how this one goes, this seems interesting.
I am strictly against this censorship, also there are workaround you can use to access the websites, we will be soon posting those. Stay tuned
