The four pillars of the 5g era listed by Prime Minister Modi


Narendra Modi said the government was also working on “internet for all”, similar to the lines of electricity, water and gas supply to every Indian home.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted device cost, digital connectivity, data cost and “digital first thinking” as the four pillars the government has been working on to realize the 5G dream.

Addressing the gathering, Modi said today’s summit could be global, but its repercussions and directions are local. “5G is knocking on the door of a new era in the country. 5G is the beginning of an endless sky of opportunities.”

India has now become the second largest mobile phone maker in the world, according to the Prime Minister, and that is thanks to Aatmanirbhar’s push. “Until 2014, almost all of our mobiles were imported, so we decided to become Aatmanirbhar in this sector,” he said. India now has over 200 mobile manufacturing units from just two of them till 2014.

The Prime Minister also highlighted the government’s efforts to encourage the private sector to manufacture mobile phones in India through various incentives, which are now visible in the form of PLI schemes. In the first year of the PLI program for the sector, telecom equipment manufactured more than Rs 6,200 crore of products with an investment of Rs 247 crore.

“Because of all this, we are now getting more functionality in a lower cost mobile device,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister pointed out that India has over 800 million mobile phone users, up from just 60 million in 2014. The number of citizens with an internet connection has also increased from 250 million in 2014 to over 850 million now.

The government is also working on “internet for all”, similar to the lines of delivering electricity, water and gas connections to every Indian home, according to the prime minister.

The Prime Minister also expressed his belief that India will not only benefit from the Fourth Industrial Revolution but also play a leading role in it.
