"Government stands for ensuring non-discriminatory access to internet for all citizens of the country.... It is committed to the fundamental principles and concept of net neutrality, keeping the internet accessible and available to all without discrimination," IT and Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had said in Parliament.
"Connectivity to internet must go in an unhindered manner.... I assure the House that the key principles of net neutrality will be followed while following concerns with a national outlook," he had said while replying to the Calling Attention Motion in Rajya Sabha.

A Parliamentary Committee will discuss the controversial issue of net neutrality on Thursday at a meeting where officials of telecom companies like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea are expected to present their views.
The Standing Committee of Parliament will examine the issue over which there has been an uproar for some time, with even MPs voicing concern in Parliament during the just-concluded Budget session.
