Rural Tele-density

The special scheme envisaged by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India to boost rural tele-density is financially realisable. The revenue accruing to the government from telecom services is huge and what is required for boosting tele-density is just a fraction of this amount. Radio base stations can be put up all over the country and connected to mobile switching centres, as in the cellular mobile telephony networks. Any person can buy a mobile telephone instrument and obtain a SIM card from a service provider to get connected.
