Spectrum policies are an abstract subject that is reserved for the technocrats and moreover the NSP or the national spectrum policy is very important. The relevance of ICMT is demonstrated by the e-choupal in the society for simple farmers which has further given a hike to the farmers’ income. These farmers due to the introduction of the limited ICMT gets hardly any cost for their products.

The middleman present in the distribution and supply chain operates in distant markets and the age of the internet is termed as “age of dis-inter mediation”. With the introduction of digital tools the cost of transaction in the market has significantly lowered. The technology substitute the middleman who is not giving any productivity and the nation also becomes more productive with the innovation of this new system.

We have learnt a lot from the e-choupal:

Digital inclusion: today the information society is not only reserved for the white collar employed in the offices to sit at the computer desk. Agriculture, rural activities, fishing and small industrial jobs have given a relevant lesson and transformational changes to the rural society. Digital inclusion has a lot of importance for the individuals and it has a measurable income ans empowerment gain. Development of national productivity has increased.

For the first time the objective of PURA or providing urban amenities to rural areas come within the reach of the ICMT through the electronic enablement or BB connectivity.  4G that is beyond the 3G technology is a very powerful technology that supports the mobile and fixed phone requirements at the real speed of broadband. It can also support electronic connectivity for goods transportation and services as well as people empowerment through a converged and a single system of delivery. These networks are also quite costly and requires a high degree of complexity and specialized manpower.
