India is among the leading countries where the Internet is being shut down, for a variety of reasons, from issues related to the public order to preventing cheating in examinations. With an increased policy focus on digitizing government services, and connectivity becoming critical for the move towards a cashless economy, it is important to discuss the impact that Internet shutdowns have on citizens, businesses, and governance.

The discussion will broadly cover the following issues:

01. The economic impact of Internet shutdowns
02. Social impact of Internet shutdowns
03. Understanding administrative challenges with Internet shutdowns
04. Legal enforcement: Does Section 144 hold up?
05. Alternatives to Internet shutdowns & the value of counter speech
06. International perspective on implementation and norms
