The Telecommunications Sector in India has grown exponentially to become the second largest network by subscribers in the world. The common man has benefited from lower prices and access to communication services. This in turn has fueled the entire ecosystem resulting in a positive impact on overall economy.
Telecom sector plays a pivotal role in the socio-economic development as there is a positive correlation between the penetration of mobile services and internet on the growth of GDP of a country. In today's world, digital inclusion is a key parameter depicting social growth, as digital access and literacy, provides the masses an opportunity to access public and private services, like never before. Digital access also opens up a plethora of content and powers the movement towards a knowledge-based economy.
The key sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, banking and financial services, public services, e-commerce, healthcare, education, advanced industries, entertainment etc. are riding on the backbone of telecommunications services.
The growth of the telecommunications sector is highly dependent on a forward looking policy and regulatory environment that fosters investment, innovation and productivity.
The last edition of this Summit held in 2017 deliberated on many of the important issues and are pleased to inform that the Government has initiated these reforms in fast-track mode. ASSOCHAM lauds the efforts of the Department of Telecommunication for taking another major step towards the development and progress of the Telecommunications Sector by coming out with a holistic National Digital Communications Policy 2018.
The Draft Policy recognizes that the telecommunications sector is a critical enabler for Digital India and is designed to empower Indian telecom to fulfill this designated role to achieve the larger national vision. The proposed Policy is progressive as it rightly considers all aspects vital for the development and growth of the sector to deliver connectivity for all in both urban and rural areas, across the country, amidst an evolving landscape of convergence across technologies and platforms.
ASSOCHAM had submitted its suggestions on the Draft Policy and wishes to contribute in the process of taking the policy document and converting it into actionable items in the weeks after the Department finalizes the policy, by holding the 11th Edition on its Annual TELECOM INDIA Workshop of all stakeholders under the aegis of Department of Telecom, Government of India and ASSOCHAM.
On behalf of ASSOCHAM we take this opportunity to cordially invite your esteemed organization as a “Partner” with a nominal financial support of Rs Three Lakh only. Copy of the Partnership details is attached for your kind reference.
We look forward to your continued support and guidance for further growth of the Industry.
