Internet and mobile network shutdowns
UNESCO reported that between 2012 and 2017, Indian authorities mandated complete internet and mobile network shutdowns in different parts of India. These caused citizens and businesses to be unable to access the internet for as much as 680 days. eCommerce, media and IT services were among the most affected sectors, and it is reported that as much as USD 3 Billion have been lost as a result. Although much of these shutdowns occured in certain regions, nearly half of India's states saw shutdowns of some kind during the reported period. For the most part, these shutdowns occured as a response to political unrest, to prevent the circulation of videos and photos of abuses by the military and clashes with activists and protesters.
