According to Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Minister of Communications, Electronics and Information Technology and Railways, India’s digitalisation approach will be recognised worldwide in the upcoming five-six years. He said that the upcoming year will offer an end-to-end 4G-5G telecom stack as India is planning to roll out its developed technology which has been tested to handle 10 million simultaneous calls. 

Speaking at the inaugural of Business 20 (B20) in Gandhinagar, Vaishnaw informed that currently only five countries in the world enjoy seamless service continuity but now with the public-private partnership, India is likely to join the end-to-end network league. The minister credited private partners for the developed service approach and applauded the private-public partnership mentioning the significant role of independent players in indigenous technology development.

Further, the minister added that while the current year targets to roll out nearly 50,000 to 70,000 towers and sites, the following year will be offering the service to the world. He underlined the four broad approaches adopted by the government to solve the pressing problems surrounding economic management, digital economy, regulation in the digital economy and development of new technology.
