While speaking, PM Modi said, India has transparently moved to 4G and now moving to 5G. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has played a major role in this smooth transition.

Criticising the Congress-led UPA government, PM Modi said, the 2G era was a symbol of policy paralysis and corruption. Later he added that whenever the telecom industry faced a crisis our government responded and undertook reforms. “These efforts have created new trust. The result of this is that over one-and-a-half times more FDI in the telecom sector has come in the last 8 years compared to the amount that came into the country before 2014," PM Modi said.

While concluding, PM Modi said, India has become the biggest mobile manufacturing hub in the world. Our government has led India to have one of the cheapest data charges in the world.
