37% rural youth sans Internet access: Study
In the past we’ve seen several verbal assurances about how TRAI and the DoT are in support of Net Neutrality in India. A new report by The Times of India now states that the government may soon go public and most likely this week on its decision to support net neutrality, which means the Internet would be equal for all without any discrimination or prioritisation.
If you remember, a six-member panel, headed by AK Bhargava, had been set up to submit a report on net neutrality. The DoT report is at the Prime Minister’s Office and reportedly ‘will be used to form framework for the government policy’ on net neutrality. It will also include recommendations from the telecom regular that are yet to be submitted to DoT.
