NEW DELHI, Dec 30 - Telecom regulator Trai today extended the last date for receiving comments on its paper on differential data pricing � a key aspect of the raging debate on net neutrality � by about a week to January 7.

The date has been extended at a time when social network Facebook has launched a massive campaign in support of its Free Basics Internet service, which has been dubbed in various quarters as violating the principle of net neutrality.

�We have extended it to January 7 mainly due to request from telecom industry bodies,� Trai Chairman RS Sharma said. The deadline for comments on the paper was to end today.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) also extended the last date for counter comments to January 14, but said �that no request for any further extension of time for submission of comments/counter comments shall be entertained.�

Although the paper by Trai does not mention or use the term net neutrality, it details the idea of zero-rating platforms that have stirred up a big debate on the issue across the country. � PTI
