DoT’s approval of TRAI’s recommendations on Net Neutrality

TRAI released its recommendations on Net Neutrality in November, 2017. The recommendations include:

  1. Prohibiting discriminatory treatment of content, updating license agreements for ISP to incorporated principles of non-discriminatory treatment of content.
  2. Setting up a multistakeholder watchdog under DoT for enforcing net neutrality. Website blocking by government/court orders has been kept outside the ambit while IoT has been kept within the ambit of net neutrality.

In July, 2018, the Telecom Commission approved these recommendations.
