Medilytix Bureau : Rationalising the expense of 5G and the price of tariff, Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw explained that India is the second largest manufacturers of mobile phones in the world and close to 25-30 per cent of these are already 5G-enabled.
Just days after India’s first 5G spectrum auction concluded, the government has approved the allocation of radio waves to different telecom firms on Thursday, helping the private players to rapidly start work on 5G in India, the Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said.
He added, “Today morning our Committee of Secretaries had a meeting and approved the spectrum allocation to the companies and very rapidly by maybe 10 August, we should be able to allocate the spectrum. And after setting up the equipment, tuning them, getting them up and running, we should be able to roll out 5G by October.”

Typically, 5G offers speeds about 10 times faster than 4G, lag-free connectivity, and can enable billions of connected devices to share data in real-time.
On how safe 5G is, Viashnaw said, “We should look at these things from good evidence and scientific data point of way. I would say, if the global standards are 100 for electromagnetic radiation, in India, the average EMF level is just 10. But human beings are same in India, same in Europe an everywhere else. So, if the standard for the radiation are 10 times more in other parts of the world, why should we have a low radiation as a low radiation basically means our ability to provide good quality services is hampered.”
