Hello Friend,

March 28th marks Universal Acceptance Day (UA Day) and the world is coming together to raise awareness about the importance of Universal Acceptance (UA).  UASG efforts to promote UA and ensure everyone can access the internet equally are likely to make significant impact.

Universal Acceptance is the idea that all domain names and email addresses, regardless of the script or language they are written in, should be treated equally. This means that websites, email providers, and other online services should be able to recognize and accept all domain names and email addresses, including those in non-Latin scripts.

This year’s UA Day global event is being hosted in India by the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI, lead by CEO Anil Kumar Jain), which manages 22 Indian language domain names and the .in top-level domain. India is a country where UA is particularly important, with over 22 official languages and a diverse population that requires equal access to online services. Minister of Electronics &  IT and Railways Ashwani Vaishnav ji and State Minister of Electronics &;IT Rajeev Chandrashekhar ji are going to inaugurate the UA day from India.

Secretary Ministry of Electronics and IT Sh. Alkesh Sharma ji wrote an article on UA which was published today in India’s leading news portal. Link is below.

Below are some links to important sessions happening for UA day and everyone globally can access and take part in this historical movement.
