Rajasthan HC issued notice in a petition by Industry Bodies against repeated internet suspensions in Rajasthan

No state suspends internet services more than Rajasthan. These suspensions violate fundamental rights of the residents of Rajasthan and cause irreparable economic damage. Udaipur Chambers of Commerce and Industry (‘UCCI’), and Hotel Association, Udaipur have approached the Rajasthan High Court pointing out that the Government of Rajasthan has been consistently violating applicable law and also the directions of the Supreme Court in Anuradha Bhasin v. Union of India by - 1) not publishing internet suspension orders and 2) suspending internet services for reasons not permitted under law. The Rajasthan High Court has issued notice and tagged the petition with other cases related to internet suspension. Sr. Adv. Mr. Manish Shishodia represented UCCI and the Hotel Association, and IFF provided legal support.
