Net Neutrality Logo

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on May 30, 2016 published a Pre-Consultation Paper on Net Neutrality, inviting stakeholder comments on 6 broad questions including the core principles of net neutrality, permissible traffic management techniques that may be adopted by Internet service providers, the ideal regulatory approach to net neutrality, and relevant privacy and national security considerations to be borne in mind while speaking of net neutrality from a regulatory standpoint. The core issues involved were largely similar to those from TRAI’s previous consultation paper on regulation of Over-the-Top service providers. SFLC.in submitted its set of responses to the Pre-Consultation Paper along with a concept not in support of the submission. The full text of our responses can be accessed here, and the concept note can be viewed here.
