Future Trends for Telecom Industry in India

Telecommunication has emerged as a key driver of economic and social development in an increasingly knowledge intensive global scenario. The reach of telecom services to all parts of the country is integral for the development of India. Studies have shown that there is a positive correlation between the penetration of Internet & Mobile Services and the growth of Indian economy. The Government of India has recognized this fact and has taken various measures over the years, as a result the Indian Telecom Sector has grown exponentially and has become the second largest network in the world, next only to China. Today India is fastest growing telecom market in the world with telephone subscribers 892.02 million at the end of February, 2013. The share of urban subscribers is 61.87% whereas share of rural subscribers is 38.92% in the month of February 2013.

At present, the broadband connectivity in India is very low. Creation of broadband highways is the backbone for realizing the vision of Digital India so that India can become a 'competitive nation' in the digital space. To bridge the rural coverage gap for both broadband penetration and voice, Government has undertaken to establish the National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) laying incremental optical fiber to connect all 2,50,000 Gram Panchayats in the country with 100 mbps broadband. The Government has also planned to cover all uncovered villages in a phased manner by March 2019 which presently does not have mobile connectivity. Thus looking at the existing large telecom network and increasing government initiative to connect rural and semi- urban areas, it is clear that there is a huge scope for development in Indian Telecom sector. Again by allowing foreign direct investment, the government have attracted large amount of investments in the booming Indian telecom sector, which will drive growth and employment in the sector.

With the growth in Indian Telecom industry the demand for various professional such as RF Surveyor, Telecom Engineer, etc. is bound to increase. Mobile operators in the wireless segment have alone generated an estimated 2.3 million jobs till now and it is estimated that the sector as a whole is likely to create about 40 lakh direct and indirect jobs over the next 5 years
