Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik bats for net neutrality 17.4.2015 DNA: Top News
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday said any move to dilute internet freedom would cause economic loss to the booming IT industry and it might affect the poor as several services to them were delivered through the internet. "It must be noted that this is not an issue of just elite as it is being made out to be. It will affect even the poor because so many services are delivered over the internet today," Patnaik said in a letter to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman Rahul Khullar. "The government is trying to extend its services to the people through this medium because it will be effective and inexpensive. Present usage of the net seems to encompass everyone, rich or poor, particularly the younger people," he said. Stating that he did not see any justification in limiting the ability of new start-up companies to reach the internet user, Patnaik said "Let us remember that the internet is not the market place but the market is made inside the internet... While the ...

Amid a raging debate over 'net neutrality', Youth Congress and National Students Union of India (NSUI) on Thursday demanded the government to treat all data on Internet equally. The frontal organisations of Congress took out a "Save the Internet March" demanding 'net neutrality' and free Internet access to all. A delegation, led by Youth Congress president Raja Brar and NSUI president Roji John, also met Union Communications and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and submitted a memorandum, said NSUI spokesman Amrish Ranjan Pandey.

Net neutrality: Is the regulator favouring telcos? 16.4.2015 DNA: Popular News
As a debate continues on 'net neutrality', the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) today alleged that TRAI was furthering the agenda of telecom operators on this issue, even as the submissions received by the regulator neared 8-lakh level on the matter. The telecom sector regulator has invited public comments on a discussion paper on policy framework for net-neutrality and internet-based messaging and calling service providers such as WhatsApp, Skype, Viber and Google Talk. "It looks like Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), in its consultation paper, has copy-pasted from submissions of telcos. India has a robust and at times, overbearing IT Act," IAMAI President Subho Ray said. IAMAI counts global as well as domestic Internet firms like Google, Facebook, Snapdeal, Ola, MakeMyTrip and Saavn as its members. Expressing support for net neutrality, Ray said in a statement that "the paper makes an assumption that Internet doesn't come under any regulations, which is incorrect. All ...
