Growth of the internet through affordable mobile devices has reignited the media industry, he said, adding that 5G technology is set to further enhance the user experience with increase in the speed of delivery and improvement in the quality of content.

Thakur said the media has an immense ability to shape the right public perceptions and perspectives as an effective tool of empowerment.

He said the media had played a crucial role in India’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in removing vaccine hesitancy.

“We faced many roadblocks. One of the foremost challenges was vaccine hesitancy. That was broken by the media through right messages and education,” Thakur said.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the citizens on All India Radio programmes and television channels to give a clear message about the vaccines.

Thakur said that authenticity of content would always remain at the core, whatever be the technological progress.

“We can talk about the right to free flow of information, we also need to talk about the need for dissemination of correct information,” he added.

Thakur said India’s soft power was evident at the Cannes, where Indian films got tremendous applause from film lovers.

He said the prime minister had stressed on preservation and promotion of India’s rich cultural heritage.

“To fulfil that vision the government has announced the world’s largest film restoration project under the National Film Heritage Mission. As part of this drive, more than 2,200 movies across languages and genres will be restored to their former glory,” Thakur said.

What Are the Technology Requirements for 5G?Growth of the internet through affordable mobile devices has reignited the media  .

Within a few days the Union cabinet will give the go-ahead for 5G auctions. Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi has last week made clear that the government will support the roll-out of 5G as an “important step toward self-reliance in critical and modern technology”, the timelines are going to hold.

Given that, it is important now that the telecom regulator, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), the group of secretaries, the Digital Communications Commission (DDC) and the Union cabinet get the prices and the range of airwaves offered to the industry just right.
