IBF applauds TRAI’s notification on differential pricing of data services

Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) has welcomed the TRAI’s decision to rule out differential pricing.

IBF in its response to the consultation paper had clearly stated that such discriminatory entry barriers would lead to ‘reduced scope of consumer choice, inducing artificial scarcity. IBF had earlier opposed differential pricing terming it to be ‘non-competitive.’

 "In our opinion, TRAI’s regulation on prohibiting differential pricing constitutes a milestone as it was against the basic principle of Internet access as no private player should have the power and right to decide which information can be accessed and which is less easily available," said Girish Srivastava, Secretary General, IBF
