Indian 5G is indigenous; can also supply to other countries: Sitharaman


India has launched its locally developed 5G infrastructure and is ready to share it with other countries as well, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Thursday.

“The (Indian 5G) story has yet to reach the public,” Sitharaman said while interacting with students from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

“The 5G that we have launched in our country is completely autonomous,” she said in response to a question.

“There could be parts from, say, countries like (South) Korea, but (not) from somebody else. Indigenous technology so comprehensive that we can now deliver 5G (to no one). any country) who wishes,” she said.

“So our 5G is not imported from elsewhere. It is our own product,” Sitharaman said.

5G services were recently launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in selected Indian cities and are expected to cover the whole country by 2024, she said. “On 5G, I think we can be extremely proud of India‘s achievements,” Sitharaman said.
