Net neutrality in India gets Government go-ahead

In a move that will prevent Internet service providers, social media companies and mobile operators from creating monopoly on the Internet, the Government today gave its approval to Net Neutrality in India. This will ensure that no Internet giant can manipulate to get preferential access for its content. 

Service providers have been debarred from blocking access to content, thus making access to the Internet unrestricted and without any discrimination. 

However, some critical services such as telemedicine/ remote surgery and autonomous cars have been kept out of the purview of Net Neutrality. 

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had set the guidelines for Net Neutrality in the country, which were sent for approval to the Telecom Commission, which gave its approval today (July 11, 2018).
