TRAI extends deadline for differential pricing comments

TRAI has extended the last date for receiving comments on its consultation paper on differential pricing. TRAI said it will accept comments upto January 7, 2016 and counter comments until January 14, 2016.

The regulatory body said that it has decided to extend the deadline after requests from industry bodies and other stakeholders. Differential pricing is a key aspect of the ongoing debate on net neutrality and is also one of the controversial facets of Facebook's Free Basics program, which is being opposed by a number of orivate citizens and internet companies in India.

A number of industry bodies like IAMAI and NASSCOM have already submitted their suggestions to TRAI, urging the regulator to preserve a free internet in the country by restricting content creators and network providers' role as gatekeepers.

In an interview to The Hindu, TRAI Chairman RS Sharma sought to distance the conversation from Free Basics and urged commentators to concentrate on the topic of the consultation paper, viz. differential pricing.
