There were several controversies going on in the past over the issue of Net Neutrality in India. Also, the Government of India was expected to make a formal statement about its stand on net neutrality last month.
Well, now a new report by The Times of India states that the government may most likely go public this week and announce its decision to support net neutrality, which would mean that the Internet would be same for all without any prioritization or discrimination.
Headed by AK Bhargava, a six-member panel had been formed to submit a report on net neutrality. Currently, the DoT report is with the Prime Minister’s Office. It will basically be the backbone of a set of policies around net neutrality put into place. It will also include suggestions from the telecom regular that are yet to be submitted to DoT.
