This is from Kieren MacCarthy's article:

"In a statement<http://news.dot-nxt.com/2011/10/27/un-ga-india-cirp-proposal> sent yesterday, India argued for the creation of a new body to be called the United Nations Committee for Internet-Related Policies (CIRP) which would develop Internet policies, oversee all Internet standards bodies and policy organizations, negotiate Internet-related treaties, and act as an arbitrator in Internet-related disputes.
The CIRP would exist under the United Nations, comprise of 50 Member States, be funded by the United Nations, run by staff from the UN’s Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) arm, and report directly to the UN General Assembly."

#  And the Government spokesperson argued that this “should not be viewed as an attempt by governments to ‘take over’ or ‘regulate and circumscribe’ the Internet.” !!

#  The IBSA proposal was badly criticized by the Civil Society in the lists and at the Nairobi Internet Governance Forum, it appeared that India wasn't the prime contributor to that imaginative proposal, but those of us who believed that India couldn't have proposed or fully endorsed the first IBSA proposal --- we were wrong.
