Telecom Commission Says That Internet Will Stay Free In India

The Telecom Commission this week sanctioned net neutrality guidelines that ban service operators from discriminating against Internet services and content by throttling, blocking, or granting them access to higher speed.

Some mission critical services or applications such as autonomous cars and remote surgery will, on the other hand, be kept out of the affect of net neutrality structure.

“The TC (Telecom Commission) this week sanctioned net neutrality as suggested by TRAI expect for the fact that some important services will be kept out of its range,” claimed Aruna Sundararajan, Telecom Secretary, to the media in an interview.

The TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) had suggested limitations on service operators from entering into deals, which results in biased treatment of Internet’s content.

The commission also sanctioned the new telecom rule named as National Digital Communications Policy 2018. This was done for seeking acceptance of the Union Cabinet, Sundararajan claimed further.

“Everyone in the meeting this week claimed that digital framework is even more significant than physical framework for India. Amitabh Kant (CEO of Niti Ayog) claimed that for districts, we must make sure digital framework is offered at the earliest as possible. Hence, India must have effortlessness of enabling policy environment and conducting business,” she claimed.

An executive, who was part of the discussion, claimed that the commission has sanctioned installation of almost 12.5 Lakh WiFi hotspots in all Gram Panchayats with feasibility gap funding of almost Rs 6,000 Crore by the end of 2018.

On a related note, the government might follow the “Saubhagya” model in rural areas for electricity distribution to broaden the scope of its national broadband project. This will also help each home in the village surf the Internet, claimed senior executives who are aware of the plan. “BharatNet,” India’s broadband project, dreams of offering broadband connectivity to almost 250,000 Gram Panchayats.
