Updated September 20, 2018 07:57:03India’s Internet censorship is not a problem of government, it is a problem that can be solved by private companies.
That’s the argument made by India’s Internet Regulatory Authority (IRA), which is set to unveil its next round of recommendations on how to tackle the country’s growing Internet censorship.
The regulator, known as the Internet Policy and Management Council (IPMC), is expected to recommend that India introduce a “Google-free” internet by 2021, a policy that has been the subject of intense lobbying from the private sector.
India has already launched a voluntary Internet service, dubbed Google India, which aims to remove censorship barriers.
The service is now available for all users in India and the rest of the world.
In February, the country imposed its toughest anti-terror law in a decade, barring citizens from accessing sites or apps that contain extremist material.
The move was widely seen as a bid to clamp down on extremist content.
The Internet Regulatory Agency said in a statement that it had already taken measures to address “security threats,” such as the blocking of certain content by private internet companies.
However, it did not elaborate on how these measures would work.
While the move was controversial, it was seen as an important step towards tackling the problem, said Prakash Pandey, head of the Centre for Research on Globalisation and a member of India’s Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology (PSI).
Pai said that the government has the ability to block certain content or impose restrictions on certain websites.
However he noted that there are many ways of doing so, and that India’s legal framework and regulatory bodies will have to deal with these changes.
“There is no one-size-fits-all solution,” he said.
India’s government is in the process of reviewing and revamping the countrys current internet policy.
This includes updating the country s new Copyright Act, which provides for a minimum age for copyright infringement, as well as the creation of a national portal for the registration of copyright infringement claims, and the creation and enforcement of copyright rules.
The government is also reviewing the existing Telecommunications Act, also known as TRAI, to ensure that it is sufficiently robust and enforceable, as opposed to outdated, ineffective or outdated.
The new policy also proposes to revise the Communications Act and the Telecommunications (Regulation and Licensing) Act, as part of an overall overhaul of the telecom sector.
