New Delhi:

The government-constituted committee to work out a roadmap for 5G rollout is working on drafting interim reports on the proposed 5G blueprint, sources said.

The forum, chaired by Telecom Secretary, held a meeting on Thursday and will hold its next meeting in mid-June, a government official said.

"The third meeting of the 5G Forum was held yesterday and the interim reports can be expected shortly.

The next meeting is likely to be held on June 14," the official said. Multiple sub groups had been formed to look into various aspects of 5G, including app layers, large-scale trials for 5G and technology standards among others, the official said.

India, today is positioning itself as a globally synchronised player in the design, development and manufacturing of 5G-based technology, products and application.

In view of it, the government constituted a committee in 2017 comprising secretaries of the Telecom Department, IT and Electronics Ministry and Science and Technology Department to work out the goals for India's 5G ambitions and to evaluate an action plan for the same.

Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundararajan had earlier called upon industry, academia and startups to do their bit to push India to take a lead in the 5th-generation wireless system which enables higher-speed mobile broadband, mission-critical services and massive Internet of Things (IoT) deployment.
