    The meeting dwelt on various technical, legal and social aspects of the Airtel Zero and initiative of Facebook.

    The group has also decided to give a detailed representation to TRAI on the issue of net neutrality with a holistic view seeking protection of fundamental principles and rights enshrined in the Constitution of India.

    The principle of net neutrality calls for equal treatment to be accorded to all Internet traffic, without discrimination or priority for any person, entity or company.
