Key points of his address

  • From Rs 300 per 1 GB data, India now has 1 GB data for Rs 10, says PM Modi on the country having one of most affordable data tariffs in world.
  • From 2 mobile manufacturing units in India in 2014, country now has over 200 mobile factories. People laughed at the idea of becoming 'Aatmanirbhar' but it has been done. It's taking electronic costs down.
  • India focused on cost of devices, data tariffs to drive digital penetration: PM Modi. 
  • India was dependent on foreign countries for 2G, 3G, 4G but with 5G, the country is creating history, says PM Narendra Modi at launch of 5G.
  • From exporting zero mobile phones in 2014, to now, when we export phones worth thousands of crores... these efforts have had an impact on the cost of the device. Now we have started getting more features at a lower cost
  • I've seen even the poor of the country always come forward to adopt new technologies... Technology has become democratic in its truest sense
  • Digital India has given every citizen a space. Even the smallest street vendor is using facility of UPI. Govt reached the citizens without any middlemen, benefits reached beneficiaries directly
