Net neutrality is the idea of an open, equal internet for everybody, regardless of device, application or platform used and content consumed. Defenders of the idea accept all corporations, including internet service providers (ISPs), ought to treat internet data and users equally. They shouldn't limit access, dial back access speeds or block content for certain users to serve their own advantages. ISPs should also not make special arrangements with any companies to give them further developed network speeds or access. Columbia Law School professor Tim Wu begat the term net neutrality in his June 2002 paper, "A Proposal for Network Neutrality. His proposal for net neutrality attempted to balance the contending interests by "forbidding broadband operators, absent an appearance of harm, from limiting what users do with their internet association, while giving the operator opportunity to manage bandwidth utilization and different matters of local concern. Net neutrality supporters accept that the internet ought to remain free, open and nondiscriminatory and that this is essential for a democratic exchange of ideas and information, ethical strategic policies, fair rivalry and continuous innovation. Net neutrality rivals, including many ISPs, maintain that government legislation of the internet is an unnecessary barrier to innovation and monetary development.

In this Paper the author has briefly tried to explain why was net neutrality in news again and what are the related policies and controversies associated with it.
