Update : India Broadband Policy ...

Info here.

Update (18-Oct-2004) : The broadband policy describes broadband as 256kbps (it's another issue that worldwide it's generally considered to be 512kbps) and the Communications minister had hinted that it should be made available in the Rs.500-700 range.

What I still am skeptical about is whether the policy and interpreters consider "broadband" to be always on and whether this Rs.500-700 range will be for an always on _and_ unlimited transfer or whether the service providers will start their old nasty schemes, once again, offering 10hr/month or 300mb at 256kbps beating the whole purpose of such a policy !! Let's wait and see.
