India will soon see the arrival of 5G mobile services, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday as he rooted for ‘Made-in-India’ technology solutions to meet the challenges of the new India.
The Prime Minister said it is time for India’s technology and digital technology to make reforms in every area.
“India’s techade is here! With 5G, semiconductor manufacturing and fiber optic cable (OFC) manufacturing in villages, we are bringing a revolution through Digital India to the grassroots level,” said Modi.
He said the Digital India Movement with the production of semiconductors, 5G networks and fiber networks is showing strength in three segments: education, health facilities and change in the lives of ordinary people.
Modi said India’s industrial growth will come from the grassroots.
“Our micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), street vendors and those working in the organized sectors need to be strengthened,” he said.
Modi promised to fight corruption with full force.
“We must fight corruption with all our strength. In the past eight years, Aadhaar, Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) and mobile phones have been used to find Rs 2 lakh crore black money,” he said.
