Compulsory installation of 5G technology housing projects and telecom infrastructure on campus will help in faster rollout of 5G technology in the country. For this, the Department of Telecommunications is amending the old rules.

The government is soon making changes to the National Building Code and Model Building Bylaws to introduce 5G technology. It plans to make housing projects and setting up of telecom infrastructure on campus mandatory.

Draft Right of Way (ROW) Guide
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has released a draft of the Right to the Road (RoW) guidelines for setting up infrastructure to suit the needs of 5G networks, with amendments to the old standards. DoT has decided that central government officials will allow small cells to be set up free of cost on government buildings and structures. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has started work to expedite the expansion of telecom infrastructure in view of the new 5G commercial rollout. For this, street furniture will be used under the pilot program.

Avoid setting up a 5G site at a height
Telecom companies have to avoid setting up 5G sites at very high altitudes, as they send signals very quickly, but they do not travel very far. When 2G, 3G and 4G signals are weak, they cover long distances. The guidelines laid down by DoT state that in case of a pole for small cell deployment, the application fee should not exceed ₹1,000 per application.

ROW guide released in 2016
The draft states that permission will not be required to set up telecom infrastructure on any private property falling under the authority’s jurisdiction. Not only this, telecom infrastructure is required on central government buildings, no installation fee will be charged. The last RoW guidelines were issued in 2016, but it took a long time for most states to comply with the standards.
