IAMAI asks central government to control internet shutdowns in the country

Share via:

The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has written to the central government to control internet shutdowns in the country.

According to Reuters, the industry body, whose members include telecom and social media companies, as well as digital platforms, internet outages in the country cause “significant inconvenience to the local public at large.” According to the letter, which was obtained by Reuters, the central government should be the governing authority for internet suspensions. Currently, internet shutdowns are handled by the respective states, which shut down internet services for a variety of reasons such as maintaining law and order and preventing students from cheating on exams. The IAMAI urged that the Centre be the governing authority for internet shutdowns, and that states follow its procedures.
