He said it was an important step in the vision or Digital India and Aatmanirbhar Bharat.
“When it comes to Digital India, some people think it’s just a government initiative. But Digital India is not just a name, it’s a big vision for the development of the country,” Prime Minister Modi said at the opening of the 6th Mobile India Congress in Pragati Maidan Said to launch 5G service in Delhi.
