5G is indigenous technology that India can now provide to other countries, said Nirmala Sitharaman.
Washington: Indian 5G infrastructure has been launched, and the country is prepared to share it with other nations as well, according to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday.
In her conversation with students at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Ms. Sitharaman stated that “the tale (of India’s 5G) is yet to reach the public” (SAIS).
She responded to a query with, “The 5G that we’ve released in our country is fully freestanding.
“There could be some parts coming from, say, countries like (South) Korea, but (not) coming from somebody else. So complete indigenous technology that we can now provide 5G (to any country) who wants it,” She spoke.
“So, our 5G is not imported from somewhere else. It’s our own product,” stated Ms. Sitharaman.
The 5G services were recently launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in select Indian cities and are likely to cover the entire nation by 2024, She spoke.
“On 5G, I think we can be immensely proud of India’s achievements,” remarked Nirmala Sitharaman.
