India is now getting ready for 6G technology, and a task force has been set up for the same, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday while hailing the swift rollout of 5G technology in the country. The internet is now reaching every village, and the country is now gearing up for quantum computers, Modi said while addressing the nation on the 77th Independence Day.
“My country is the fastest country to roll out 5G. We have reached more than 700 districts, and now we are getting ready for 6G. We have formed a task force,” Modi said from the ramparts of the Red Fort.
Developed countries are willing to learn about the success of Digital India, and the world is going to be influenced by technology, he said.
To push technology in the agriculture sector, the government is working on a new scheme under which thousands of women in self-help groups will be trained and equipped with drones.
“I see the potential of science and technology among our rural women. Therefore, we are thinking of a new scheme to bring technology to the agriculture sector.”
“Agriculture should get a boost. Therefore, we will impart training in drone piloting and drone repair to the women’s self-help groups. Thousands of such women’s self-help groups will be provided with drones and training. We are going to start drone flights with 15,000 women from SHG,” Modi said.
The government is working on policies to provide the youth with abundant opportunities, as the youth of the nation have huge capability, he said.
“Today, our youth have placed India among the top three start-up systems globally. Global youth is surprised with this capability and power of India,” Modi said.
To get rid of corruption, the government is using technology, he said.
“Today the internet is reaching every village. India is getting ready for quantum computers. Today farmer-producer organisations are being created; we are also going to make semiconductors,” Modi said.
The prime minister said internet data was very expensive before 2014, and at present the lowest spend is on data, which has resulted in savings for every family.
