An Inquiry into the Future of Net Neutrality in India

Project Leader: Dr. Rajat Kathuria
Research Team: Mansi Kedia and Parnil Urdhwareshe
Commencement: May 2015
Funded by:  Kanakia Foundation

The conundrum of Net Neutrality has rapidly become one of the most pressing issues in Internet policy. As debates on the subject intensify, regulators across countries are struggling with balancing the interests of the numerous stakeholders involved. This project attempts to better inform policy through the organisation of round table conferences bringing together members of civil society, government, industry and academia for focused discussions on the need and possible direction of Net Neutrality regulation carefully tailored to the Indian context. Inputs from these conferences combined with secondary data based research will be distilled into a report with actionable policy recommendations for dissemination.
