Hopeful of new telecom policy in 2018: Secretary

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The communications ministry will set up working groups to deliberate on the new telecom policy (NTP) and hopes it will become a reality in 2018, Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundararajan said yesterday.

The policy in the offing, will focus on areas such as Internet for all, next-generation technologies (like 5G and Internet of Things), skills development, and security, among others.

"We are commencing the work (on NTP)...And we will be setting-up the working groups and committees for this," Sundararajan said on the sidelines of an event on 'ICT: Engendering New Governance Structure'.

Asked if the telecom department hopes to bring the new policy in the sector sometime in 2018, she replied in affirmative saying, "yes, we are indeed hopeful". Speaking at a seminar, Telcom Minister Minister Manoj Sinha said the upcoming policy will be application driven as compared to connectivity driven at present.

The policy has to focus on the end users and should look at the newer opportunities for expanding the availability of telecom services, the minister added. He further pointed out that the advent of high-speed data services and enhanced user expectation of getting real time on-demand band-width to run live applications has set the tone for new policy.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Getting work concluded on time will not be a problem for you but the quality may suffer. Perhaps your mind is not in what you are doing. Your preoccupation with some personal problems or family issues could be distracting. You need to pull yourself out of such situation. A heart to heart talk would be most appropriate to solve a problem.
