Ministry of Defence revises 2018 rulebook to align with Indian Telegraph RoW Rules

The Ministry of Defence has revised its 2018 rulebook to allow the installation of telecom infrastructure on defence land, in a bid to align with the Indian Telegraph Right of Way Rules and improve communication network quality, apart from facilitating the 5G roll-out. Under the revised rules, cantonment boards and station headquarters will have the authority to approve the installation of telecom infra on defence land.
