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.”
