Internet must be linked with regional languages, says IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad

Union minister for electronics and information technology Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday appealed to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to expedite the process for web addresses in local language scripts.

“The language of internet cannot be English and English alone. It must have linkages with the local, and local means local languages. I appeal to the ICANN community to make local languages available for more internet users to make it accessible,” he said at the opening ceremony of the ICANN public meeting in Hyderabad.
