India Set to Lead the World in 6G Technology, Says PM Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared that India is poised to become a global leader in 6G technology, stating that the future is already upon us. Speaking at the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) in New Delhi, PM Modi emphasized India’s commitment to not only expanding 5G capabilities but also spearheading advancements in 6G technology.
Reflecting on India’s progress, PM Modi highlighted the country’s successful implementation of 4G without any controversies or setbacks, in stark contrast to the infamous 2G spectrum allocation scam during the previous UPA regime. Asserting his confidence in India’s prospects, PM Modi proclaimed, I am confident that India will lead the world in 6G technology.
Addressing an audience that included prominent figures such as Airtel chief Sunil Bharti Mittal, chairman of the Aditya Birla group Kumar Mangalam Birla, Reliance Jio chairman Akash Ambani, and telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw, PM Modi outlined his vision for an innovative future. He stressed the pivotal role of technology, telecommunications, and connectivity, including 6G, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, semiconductors, drones, and even the space sector.
PM Modi highlighted India’s remarkable progress in the telecommunications sector, citing the rapid deployment of nearly 400,000 5G base stations within a year of its launch. These stations now cover 97% of cities and over 80% of the population. This impressive feat underscores India’s commitment to harnessing the power of advanced technologies in order to bridge the digital divide and bolster connectivity nationwide.
Moreover, PM Modi celebrated the transformation in India’s mobile manufacturing sector, proudly noting that globally recognized brands such as Google, Samsung, and Apple now produce smartphones in India. This shift from being a net importer to an exporter signifies India’s emergence as a manufacturing hub for high-quality mobile phones.
The Prime Minister further praised India’s progress in mobile broadband speed, highlighting its jump from 118th to 43rd position globally. He attributed this achievement to the transformative measures implemented by his government since assuming power in 2014, emphasizing the priorities of providing access to capital, resources, and technology.
In a significant move, PM Modi also awarded 100 5G Use Case Labs to educational institutions across the country. This initiative aims to foster innovative ideas and encourage research in the field of 5G technology, promoting India’s position as a front-runner in the digital revolution.
As India continues its rapid technological advancements, it is evident that the government’s pursuit of inclusive growth, bolstered by digital connectivity and cutting-edge technology, is serving as a catalyst for progress across various sectors. With its sights set on leading the world in 6G technology, India is poised to shape the future of global telecommunications and embrace the opportunities presented by an increasingly connected world.
