Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said she would allow a half-an-hour discussion.
A strong plea, which was made yesterday in the Lower House for ensuring net neutrality, demanded that the recent consultation paper brought out by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) should be scrapped and attempts by certain telecom and internet service providers be scuttled.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, M B Rajesh (CPI-M) had alleged that the consultation paper brought out by the TRAI was "blatantly supporting" assault on net neutrality by telecom and internet service providers.
Several opposition members wanted to have their say on the issue.
