TDN World Desk: Indian mobile operator companies are losing around 2.45 crore in every hour they are forced to suspend internet services on government order to control protests against the Citizenship Act, reported Business Standard.
As protests flare in most part of the country, the government suspended the internet services to cut off communication in the digital world. In past several weeks parts of Delhi, UP, Assam, Meghalaya, Bengal and several other places experienced internet shut dow amid escalation protests over the Citizenship Act.
In modern times, internet has been playing very crucial to wage protests and mobilize people.
According to a study, in 2019 internet has been suspended in parts of India over hundred times.
Internet shut down in Jammu and Kashmir state has exceeded 140 days. Since August 5, as the Indian government scrapped the Article 370, internet remained suspended in the valley.
