The Minister for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Railways, Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw has said that the Telecom Sector in the country will witness more reforms in coming years and asserted that the industry too will have to do its bit and reciprocate by improving the quality of service significantly. He was addressing the Annual Flagship Event 2022 of the Digital Infrastructure Providers Association (DIPA), an apex industry body representing the Digital Infrastructure providers industry in India, here yesterday. The Minister of State for Communications, Shri Devusinh Chauhan, and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.

Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw said that service quality parameters have to be significantly increased, and the Telecom Department should approach the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in this regard. He advised the Telecom Department to send a new consultation paper to TRAI to significantly increase the quality-of-service parameters, almost making it 3X or 4X of what it is today.

The Minister said that the journey of 5G is going to be very exciting and noted that many countries took multiple years to reach 40% to 50% coverage. But we are targeting very aggressive parameters, timeline and the Government has given a target of 80% coverage in the short time frame and we should definitely cover at least 80% in a very short timeframe, he added.

Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw said that the industry, including Telecom Operators and Infrastructure Providers, is to move full steam ahead on improving the quality of services in the country, now that a slew of reforms had been announced and more were lined up. The Minister said initiatives cannot be one-sided, and the equation has to be reciprocal, he added.

While addressing this, the Minister of State for Communications, Shri Devusinh Chauhan, has said that our country is transforming from Developing Country into Developed Country and the Telcom Sector’s role is crucial in achieving this. He referred Prime Minister’s Reform, Perform and Transform, which should be the slogan of this sector to move ahead.

Shri Devusinh Chauhan said that the last mile connectivity is very crucial for the development of the Telecom Sector and he advised the Telecom operators to work hard in this direction. He further said that the 5G connectivity should play a major role in providing Health, Education, Mining, Transportation, Logistics fields, etc. DIPA should play a pivotal role in this regard, he added.
