Censor-Pakistan-Internet1India favours multi-stakeholder model of internet governance mechanisms, Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology said in an official statement.

The Ministry held consultations last week with a view to preserve the character of the Internet as a unified, dynamic engine for innovation and to encourage equity and inclusion.

The multi-stakeholder consultation attended by academia, business, civil society, technical community and government discussed issues for enhancing the accountability of the Internet Corporation Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

Many stakeholders appreciated the transition of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions from the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to the Global Multi-stakeholder Community as a positive development.

The meeting concluded with a call to all stakeholders to participate actively in all global processes keeping in mind the perspectives of the Indian communities.
