Addressing the inaugural session of a TDSAT seminar, Union Minister for Communications, Electronics and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw said that India should take lead in the 6G technology so that it can set the direction for the whole world.
Vaishnaw also said the Centre is looking to rebuild the regulatory structure to facilitate development of technology and interaction with industry as a partner and not as adversaries.
“We were lagging when it was 2G and 3G. We are trying to catch up with 4G. We should at least run together in 5G but in 6G we should take the lead. Otherwise, what's the point of being a nation which is today called a talent nation. A talented nation should be thinking in that way where it takes the lead, sets the goal and sets the direction for the whole world,” he added.
He mentioned that most important study groups for future development of 5G and 6G under the International Telecommunications Union are now being chaired by Indian delegates.
“It's very important for all of us to know because when litigate a case, when we sit on the bench, sit on the judgement that is the time we should think that are we doing this purely by case which is in front of me or am I going to see the future being seen for the country. If we see that and maybe make some adjustments in our legal thinking, I think that will probably be a better service to the nation,” Vaishnaw further said.
