However, a key component to employing 5G in governmental scheme delivery is acquainting the government officials across ministries and states on usage. An expert group led by the National Telecommunications Institute for Policy Research, Innovation and Training along telecom ministry, academics from IIT Delhi, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Raipur etc besides industry partners have come together to develop training programmes for the same.

5G has huge utility for delivery of government schemes and services from traffic monitoring to mobile rural clinics, remote patient monitoring, smart classrooms, crop pest control, unmanned railway crossing sensors to driverless trains, the Centre has said in a recent communication to all states.

The Centre identified 11 'economic verticals' for potential 5G usage to 'complement the digitalisation efforts in the state's development', ET has learnt. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed to states to support and adopt 5G use and infrastructure during the October 1 launch of services.

The 11 verticals are smart city and water resources; health; education, sports, infotainment, skill development, tourism; power and resource management; agriculture and fisheries, mining; logistics; intelligent transport systems; railways; ports, airports and commercial hubs and industry management.

Eight related working groups have been constituted by the telecom ministry's telecom engineering centre for application of 5G use. They in turn work with 16 Union ministries from health to education and jal shakti to draw up plans for better delivery of government schemes and services through 5G support. An inter-ministerial committee is also at work for a coordinated approach on central schemes delivered in states.

For instance, it has been identified that the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs can employ 5G for pitching intelligent transport systems, city lighting systems to modern home integration, intrusion detection and eco-friendly applications.

The health ministry has been approached on 5G use for wearable telemetry, transmission of HD images, assisted living solutions while the education ministry is engaging on immersive learning solutions for students. The power ministry is being tapped for smart grid management, metering services while fintech solutions for fraud detection are envisaged as possible domains within the finance ministry.

The transport and highway ministry is looking at 5G integration for enhanced safety, connected cars and autonomous driving systems while ministries of water resources, shipping and commerce have been engaged on automated inventory systems, fleet movement safety and controls besides remote management of mines for the mining ministry.

The telecom ministry has also sent out to all states a 'white paper on opportunity to design, develop, prototype 5G application and use cases' detailing how a collaboration between academia, industry, service providers, centres of excellence and capacity building entities can open a new opportunity window for India.

40 centres of excellence have also been identified for 5G amplification across states, from IITs to IISc Bengaluru, IISERs and the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC).

The Centre has further listed out top IT and other companies working on various 5G enabled 'smart' solutions across sectors. The list of vendors include TCS, Infosys, Wipro, Microsoft, Capgemini, Sensorise, Arkins Labs, Passenger Drone Research among others and have been shared with states

'Awareness programmes' for bureaucrats, faculty of various central/state training institutes, students of engineering institutes and its faculty members have been drawn up and are already being rolled out. NTIPRIT has already hosted programmes on smart cities and smart technologies, 5G applications, 5G spectrum, 5G use cases. Over 70 officials from ministries of home, external affairs, electronics and IT among others have completed courses at NTIPRIT. Several more training modules are being planned.
