FREE was created in July 1994 by Ashish Gulhati, Dr. Arun Mehta and Rishab Aiyer Ghosh as an online forum dedicated to protecting and enhancing fundamental human rights in the electronic domain, and representing the interests of the electronic community in India.

Documents related to FREE's activities in the '90s are available here:

FREE arose spontaneously when the fledgling online services 'industry' in India came under attack in 1994, and then became inactive once that battle was over.

In the years since, the need for such an organization in India has only become more urgent, with the growth of the Internet and of the importance of electronic communications media.

So FREE will be back soon. Bookmark and watch this site for updates.

Live FREE and prosper.
