Telecom regularity of India has extended the date to respond to their consultation paper on “Differential Pricing” to January 7. Today was the last date to respond but after request made by COAI and AUSPI, TRAI extended the date to January 7.

  • On the request of the stakeholders, the last date for receipt of written comments/views has been extended up to January 7 and counter comments, if any, up to January 14. It has also been decided that no request for any further extension of time for submission of comments/counter comments shall be entertained.
  • Differential data pricing is a key aspect of net neutrality and details the idea of zero-rating platforms like Airtel Zero, which was pulled back after huge outrage. Airtel Zero was a platform
  • Till now TRAI has received about 16.5 lakh comments- 8 Lakh responses from Facebook  or Free Basics platform.
