Govt to refresh laws before 5G rollout

The government plans to simplify and update the archaic laws that govern telecom services in India before the launch of 5G to allow, for instance, communication between connected devices to spur growth in the digital economy, a top official said. The department of telecommunications (DoT) has proposed replacing the outdated provisions of the Indian Telegraph Act and the Indian Wireless Telegraphy Act, which came into effect in 1885 and 1933, respectively, with rules that embody the current reality and evolving communication trends.
