About India IGF

The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is a multistakeholder platform bringing together representatives from various groups, considering all to be at par to discuss public policy issues related to the Internet.

India, with more than 1.4 billion citizens, 1.2 billion mobile users, and 800 million Internet users, demonstrates the growing Internet culture in the country. E-Governance and National Security becomes of paramount importance in India, specially with enhanced cyber space.

India IGF (IIGF) will provide the ability to facilitate discussions between intergovernmental organisations, private companies, technical community, academic community and civil society organisations who are involved in Internet governance-related public policy issues.

This policy dialogue is carried out on a co-equal basis through open and inclusive processes. This mode of engagement is referred to as the multistakeholder model of Internet Governance, which has been one of the key reasons for the Internet’s success.

Theme of India IGF 2021

Empower India through Power of Internet

The year of 2020 and 2021 has been bringing the internet to the forefront of public debate as pandemic lurked in. The internet has provided solutions to the restriction of gathering in curbing the virus, while on the other hand, the landscape also presented its own emerging issues and trends. As a region with enormous internet economy potential (800 Mn Internet users and over 1.2 Bn mobile users), India comes with the most diverse internet-related stakeholders and issues (e.g. cybersecurity, net neutrality, online rights, youth and digital innovation). In a global setting, following such a need to include, consider, and invite these stakeholders’ perspectives, the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) initiated the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in 2006 and has since been holding the Forum annually.

Therefore, with aforementioned internet economy size and users, as well as diverse stakeholders’ views, Indian Government, along with the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) and Other stakeholders, perceive the region is at importance to host its own India Internet Governance Forum (IIGF).
