The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) is likely to finalise its view on Net neutrality in the next few months. Speaking on the sidelines of an industry event on Tuesday, Trai chairman R S Sharma said, “The department of telecommunications has sought a comprehensive view from us on Net neutrality. It should be done in a couple of months.”

Late last month, telecommunications minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the government is awaiting telecom regulator Trai’s recommendations on voice-calling apps to take a policy decision on internet-based calls. Prasad had told Parliament that the government will take a position on this aspect after Trai’s consultation process.
