We remain deeply committed to net neutrality. On February 13 2020, IFF had already filed its main comments with TRAI on its ongoing consultation on net neutrality enforcement. However, we were troubled by the requests of large industry representatives and especially internet access providers. In essence their recommendations were geared towards acquiring discretion in terms of network management, imprecise monitoring, “light touch” enforcement and discriminatory institutional structures which would translate into limited accountability. IFF has filed counter comments to rebut these proposals and urge Indian authorities to develop strong mechanisms to realise its seminal net neutrality amendments.
