Dear Vinay,
What matters is their KRAs. Employees surf the internet because they have time to do it. If they are given sufficient work, this fact will never arise.
In my last couple of companies where I worked. I had internet access. But I could not do much surfing because with so of work do to, surfing for private reasons was out of questions.
Internet is necessary evil. Employees do go to pub in the evening. Though it is their personal and also private affair, next day they have hangover and are unable to concentrate on the work or their productivity is low. Can we think of making a policy where they cannot go to pub?

We tried to implement some of the software restrictions, such as Firewalls. In organizations due to power structures and differential privileges, we had to provide variable access rights. In due course of time we found that those who had restricted access were found using ports assigned to persons with unlimited access.
This is because of easy availability of info. on the web and some times their friends in Hardware and soft ware domain help them to overcome some of the tech. solutions chosen by the HR team.
After all if there is a lock maker there is a lock breaker too.
Then, u would ask me ... what is the solution. Policing has limitations. If employees have adequate work pressure, then the problem will be solved.

AM, I would not recommend having “adequate work pressure” as a means of ensuring compliance to policy. For those employees in hardware and software that deliberately circumvent systems and policies for the benefit of their friends, they need to be summarily dismissed. They are putting at risk the integrity and security of their employer’s systems, and there is no excuse.
It still comes back to managers and supervisors doing their job – monitoring employees and feeding back to them performance issues. If managers and supervisors are not doing this, how can we help them?

The management can block all the website addresses and give acess to only specific sites that are used for production. Only on request, demand and with proper permission from the immediate manager an employee will get an access to other sites as that may help to lubricate production activity.
External access to mail services i.e., yahoo, gmail, etc., can be restricted to team leaders, managers and up and not to be given to all.

There are some facilities/ benefits which will be "misused " for personal benefits. If you have telephone on desk, they may use them for personal discussions. If you give them company vehicle, they may use the vehile to drop their children to school etc. Another good exmple is- people reading news papers - -appointment supplements...u cannot stop them.
But you can block few sites which are illegal- like pornography, personal email etc.
Finally- we have to see whether he delives at the end of the day. So this should not be a great issue unless it affects his performance seriously.
