PM Modi directs DoT to take measures to jam signals from across borders
TT Correspondent |  |  08 Oct 2018

PM Modi has directed the department of telecom (DoT) to take measures to jam signals from neighbouring countries as also to provide signals of Indian service providers going across the borders.

The PM made this remark at the recently held monthly web-based interaction with secretaries of central government and chief secretaries from states under the PRAGATI interface. “The department should check and stop telecom signals coming from neighbouring countries and vice-versa through use of technology,” the PM said.

Sources said telecom department officials had told the PM that steps were taken to locate towers on the India side in a manner that their signal is not available across the border. Modi is learnt to have observed that the situation should not be such that people and armed forces personnel in border areas are unable to make calls. He had also advised officers to find a solution to avoid ‘enemies’ using the network of foreign telecom players to execute any untoward incident. Modi had suggested there was a need to find a technology solutions keeping in mind the long-term utility of such a measure.

On the call drop issue, the PM said, “The department should strengthen mobile/ broadband network system to curb call drop especially in border areas.”
