  • 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.
