The MSB, which could include telecom service providers, Internet service providers, content providers, researchers, academic and technical community, civil society organisations, and the government, should be set up as a non-profit entity.

The role of the MSB shall be to provide advice and support to DoT in the monitoring and enforcement of net neutrality principles.

The MSB may also be required to investigate complaints regarding the violation of net neutrality.

TRAI also suggested that the MSB help DoT in maintenance of a repository of reasonable traffic management practices.
