The telecom department (DoT) looks to finalize the new telecom policy by February and would release its draft by December-end for public comments, Union minister Manoj Sinha said.

“We are trying to bring new telecom policy by February. For this the working group has started the process. We expect high level committee working on it to finalise draft by end of December and place it for public comments,” the Communications Minister told reporters.

He said the government expects to complete the first phase of BharatNet project to connect 1 lakh village panchayats to high-speed broadband by the end of November. “Over 75,000-gram panchayats (GPs) are ready with broadband services and all 1 lakh panchayats will be ready for broadband services by end of this month. Every month we are installing equipment in 8,000-9,000 panchayats. The whole project has been executed using domestically developed equipment,” Sinha said.
