Blog Entry CIS's Position on Net Neutrality
by Sunil Abraham published Dec 04, 2015 last modified Dec 09, 2015 01:06 PM — filed under: , , ,
As researchers committed to the principle of pluralism we rarely produce institutional positions. This is also because we tend to update our positions based on research outputs.

Blog Entry Comments by the Centre for Internet and Society on the Report of the Committee on Medium Term Path on Financial Inclusion
by Vipul Kharbanda published Feb 27, 2016 last modified Mar 01, 2016 01:53 PM — filed under: , , , , ,
Apart from item-specific suggestions, CIS would like to make one broad comment with regard to the suggestions dealing with linking of Aadhaar numbers with bank accounts. Aadhaar is increasingly being used by the government in various departments as a means to prevent fraud, however there is a serious dearth of evidence to suggest that Aadhaar linkage actually prevents leakages in government schemes. The same argument would be applicable when Aadhaar numbers are sought to be utilized to prevent leakages in the banking sector.
