       ISVK India consists of 5 permanent members.

       ISVK India operates its activities through the website “”

       The said website have a monthly user visits of around 5 lakhs. 

       All the users are made privy to the developments in ICANN through a dedicated page and news scrolls.

       All the users and visitors are encouraged and invited to express their views and concerns on matters  relating to ICANN policies which are of interests to various end users here in India. 

       As the standard of living in India improves, the Internet penetration too is on the rise. It is predicted that the growth of Internet users will be in excess of 15% per year, and will continue to grow in the subsequent years. It is interesting to note that the demand for Internet comes not only from Indian cities, but also from its rural population. Another interesting prediction about the growth on Internet penetration in India is that mobile Internet will grow at faster speed than the desktop variation. 


While ‘dial up’ was the most popular means of connecting to the Internet, majority of the connections today are broadband

       According to a report by Forrester, the number of Internet users in Asia will be up from 38 % in 2008 to more than 40% in 2013. And India’s contribution to this growth will be significant, as will be China’s. 

        At about 150 million Internet users, India now has 3rd largest Internet population in the world after China (at 575m) and the US (at 275m). At 150 million total Internet users, the Internet penetration in India remains at 12 per cent vs. 43 per cent in China and 80 per cent in the US. However, the low penetration means that India presents unmatchable growth opportunity for the Internet sector in coming years. In our view, India will likely see golden period of the Internet sector between 2013 to 2018 with incredible growth opportunity and secular growth adoption for E-Commerce, Internet advertising, social media, search, online content, and services relating to E-Commerce and Internet advertising.

       Internet penetration will reach 15%. We expect India to add 30 million new Internet users in 2013 and total Internet population to touch 180mm. This implies a 20% growth in the Internet population.

       Internet usage will likely grow faster for female and from home. So far India Internet usage is heavily screwed towards male gender and from work and educational establishments. We believe that in 2013, Internet usage will grow much faster for female and from home access. This acceleration will likely happen due to overall Internet adoption moving to masses.

       E-Commerce will likely touch $900M in 2013. As per our estimates, in 2012 India E-Commerce reached $550 million in gross revenue (exc. Online travel and online classifieds) and we expect E-Commerce to touch $900 million in gross revenue by end of 2013.

       Thus due to this heavy internet penetration seen in India in recent years, there is a lot of keen interest in India in IDNs.

       Similarly, as many as 100 Indian corporate entities are expected to join the global race to own Internet domain names with their own brand extensions such as “.tata , . reliance, .icici” etc.
