Hi Naresh,

Yes, I find the widespread use of NAT in India (and indeed other
countries in the region) quite disappointing. But as G P Singh pointed
out, many ISPs can't get more than a /27 from their upstream ISP. Sounds
like a domestic problem, so it would be useful to explain how an NIR
would change the business practices of these upstream providers.

And also if you can please explain the pricing argument for others on
the list. As far as I'm aware, there is no India special pricing for
international bandwidth, domestic bandwidth, datacentres, servers,
switches, routers, &c.

There is no NIR for Hong Kong. ;-)

NIRs exist in some other countries for a variety of reasons - was the
price of management of address resources the primary (or significant)
reason for the creation of each one?
