Telecom growth increases economic development: Kovind


Separate groups of probationers of Indian Defence Estates Service, Indian Telecommunication Service and P&T Building Works Service meet President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Addressing the probationers, the President said that their services provide them an enormous platform for serving the nation. They shall be responsible for managing important projects in different domains and serve crucial sectors such as Defence and Telecommunications. Few jobs offer a chance to work in an office where everything that they do, can be an act of service to the nation.

The President said that our country has the world’s second largest telecom network based on the total number of users. The telecom sector has witnessed rapid growth especially in the wireless segment and is today regarded as basic infrastructure just like electricity, roads, and water. This sector is a critical component for achieving rapid economic progress and socio economic development. Indian Telecommunication Service officers have an important role to play as we seek to connect the unconnected especially in our rural and remote areas. This is essential to make our growth inclusive. It is Indian Telecommunication Service officers’ responsibility to ensure that we have in place an enabling policy paradigm and a conducive licensing and regulatory framework. Equally important is the job of P&T Building Works Service officers who have to ensure quality and efficiency in construction and maintenance of office and residential complexes, electrical and architectural works both in Department of Telecommunication and Department of Posts.
