Thanks for your feedback!
The objective of the APNIC EC's Call for Comment is not to begin a
collective financial analysis of the proposal. Rather, the EC wants to
find out whether the APNIC community is comfortable with the formation
of an NIR for India, or whether they are aware of risks or further
considerations the EC should investigate as part of its evaluation process.
If there are concerns related to the financial impact that such an NIR
may have on the fees of direct APNIC members, these concerns of course
should be noted. Equally, if members think such national entities should
be recognized where there is clear local community support, this should
also be expressed.
The intent of the Call for Comment was to allow members and stakeholders
a chance to express their concerns and thoughts on the matter and the EC
would certainly appreciate any comments you may care to make.
