    The article does not say, but makes it sounds like it will happen in the next few days.

    Looks like the battle is still ongoing -

    Neustar lacks capability to manage .IN registry, alleges rival Afilias:

    Rumor is Affilias lost the battle trying to confirm - however don't see that update here next date of hearing is 13th Nov 2018 in DHC and case in pending! I cannot wait for them to be booted out frankly - however its a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea?

    Yea, i dont have any issues with Afilias, but something tells me this change will help .IN as a whole. I hope i'm right.
