Comments Off on Panel Set Up For Timely Execution Of National Optic Fibre Network 4

The telecom department has set up a committee to oversee timely implementation of the much-delayed national broadband network across the country, which will be the backbone of the government’s ambitious ‘Digital India’ programme.

The committee comprises Anil Bhargava, member-technology in the telecom department, Aruna Sundararajan, administrator, USO fund, and V Umashankar, joint secretary, telecom department, according to an internal note, reviewed by ET. It will also have representation from the industry, according to the note.

The move comes within a month of the telecom minister inaugurating the National Optic Fibre Network (NOFN) project in the Idukki district of Kerela. The NOFN project, which has been delayed by over three years, is the backbone of the Rs 1.13-lakh crore ‘Digital India’ project, which hopes to deliver key social and economic infrastructure such as education and healthcare to the citizens digitally.
