New Delhi: Indian scientists, engineers and academicians have acquired 100 patents for 6G technology, IT and Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said on Thursday. While speaking at the Bharat Startup Summit organised by the PHD Chamber of Commerce, the minister said that India is taking a leap in 5G technology with the fastest rollout of networks in the world.
"Electronics is very complex, but despite the complexity, our scientists, engineers and academicians have together acquired 100 patents in 6G," Vaishnaw said.
The minister shared that the 5G network rollout has exceeded the government's expectations of covering 200 cities by March 31, with coverage in 397 cities at present. He said that India has become USD 3.5 trillion and it can become the world's largest economy with transformation across governance, infrastructure and businesses.
Vaishnaw also informed that India has started the export of telecom products to the US. "Export of radio equipment has started from India in the last 7-8 months and that too to America," he said.
"When a country or economy has to reach this level then, thousands of systems are required to be changed. From governance systems, logistics systems, banking systems and change in the own business method needs to be done. This is the time when everyone should get on to this transformation journey. If we are able to do this transformation then there is no power that can stop India from becoming a USD 30 trillion economy," Vaishnaw said.
