The inter-ministerial panel Telecom Commission is likely to consider this week a proposal for setting up mobile towers in unconnected villages of the North East, as per official sources. “Telecom connectivity plan for improving connectivity in the North East will be placed before Telecom Commission on September 8,” a government official, who did not wish to be named.

The mobile towers will be installed under the Comprehensive Telecom Development Plan for the North-Eastern Region (NER) which was approved by the Cabinet in September 2014. Under the plan, 8,621 villages out of 9,190 unconnected villages are to be covered by the installation of 6,673 mobile towers with a total outlay of Rs 5,336.18 crore. The Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF), which is handling the project, is likely to submit a bid proposal for installing around 4,000 out of the 6,673 mobile towers.
