A COM­MIT­TEE ap­pointed by the Depart­ment of Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions (DoT) has rec­om­mended ad­her­ence to the core prin­ci­ples of Net neu­tral­ity. The six-mem­ber com­mit­tee, led by DoT's tech­nol­ogy ad­vi­sor, A K Bhar­gava, has em­pha­sised the need to en­sure user rights on the In­ter­net so that tele­com or In­ter­net ser­vice providers do not re­strict users from send­ing, re­ceiv­ing, dis­play­ing, us­ing and post­ing any le­gal con­tent, ap­pli­ca­tion or ser­vice on the In­ter­net. "In­dia should take a ra­tio­nal ap­proach and ini­ti­ate ac­tion in making an ob­jec­tive pol­icy, spe­cific to the needs of our coun­try. The tim­ing for this is apt, given the growth of con­tent on the Net," says the com­mit­tee's re­port. For more on this, visit www.down­toearth.org.in
