Net Neutrality: Govt extends deadline for public comments to August 20th

In June this year, Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad assured that the government will be releasing its report on Net Neutrality ‘very soon’. Government asked public to share their opinion on net neutrality. In a recent development, Ministry of Communications and Information Technology said, “Last date for submission of suggestions & comments on report of committee on Net Neutrality through discussion forum under MyGov has been extended till 20th August 2015.”

Net Neutrality is a contentious issue and has been hotly debated by netizens over the last few months. The concept of Net Neutrality at its very basic entails that the internet will be free and open to everyone with no preference to one service provider over another.

The matter came under spotlight in India when Airtel launched its controversial Airtel Zero platform, which would have allowed marketers to pay for customers coming to their app/service over an Airtel connection. Following a huge public outrage, many brands like Flipkart, Cleartrip, NDTV, etc. decided against being a part of the platform.

The group released the Little Hearts online-only campaign, #BreakSomeHearts, early this year and is on the path to make many more of its brands available on the digital platform
