NEW DELHI: The In­ter­net is for every­body and should not ben­e­fit just a few, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and IT min­is­ter Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Fri­day, as the gov­ern­ment weighed its op­tions on a rag­ing de­bate over whether tele­com firms should in­flu­ence ac­cess to web­sites. In a free­wheel­ing in­ter­ac­tion with se­nior ed­i­tors of HT as part of the Un­plugged at HT se­ries, Prasad said his gov­ern­ment was await­ing the re­ports of two of­fi­cial pan­els on net neu­tral­ity — one by the tele­com min­istry and the other by the TRAI — be­fore tak­ing a stand.
