The Indian government has taken a strong decision to expand India’s 4G network and end the interference of Chinese companies in future 5G networks.
According to the English newspaper Times of India , license rules were changed on Wednesday to prevent Chinese telecom companies like Khwwe and ZTE from doing business with Indian telecom companies.
Now from June 15, telecom companies expanding 4G and 5G networks in India will only be able to take goods from the same ‘trusted’ companies that would have been allowed.
The government has taken this decision because it is afraid that China may interfere in the Indian network through it.
A top official from the newspaper, on condition of anonymity, said, “The recent change was needed because the rapidly expanding Indian telecom sector needed to be protected from unscrupulous elements and companies selling non-trustworthy goods.”
At the same time, the official also said that the government has said that it is particularly unhappy with the Indian mobile telecom operators who are still buying goods from Chinese companies.
These amendments of the rules were issued by the Telecom Department on Wednesday, which will come into effect from June 15. Under this, a telecom company will be able to include only ‘trusted products’ in its network.
