NIXI finally removing the x-y charge!

It’s kind of fun times in India with many IX’es showing up and now NIXI finally removing their traffic wise charge.

I came across this email which they sent to their member networks recently:

Subject: Change in Data Transfer Charges (X-Y)

Dear Members,

In reference to the Board’s direction to reduce the current data transfer (X-Y) charges from Re. 1/GB to Rs. 0/GB. The said reduction in X-Y charges to Rs. 0/GB is being implemented with effect from 1st March 2019.
This is for your kind information please.

Thanks & Regards.

This is really good. I hope next they start allowing the content networks i.e they do not demand for an ISP license to anyone who wants to connect to the IX.
