The department of telecommunication and state governments are using PM GatiShakti National Master Plan (NMP) to identify suitable street furniture for the installation of 5G cells, the commerce and industry ministry said on Monday.

Last year in October, the PM Gati Shakti-NMP was launched with an aim to develop and plan integrated infrastructure to reduce logistic costs.

All logistics and connectivity infrastructure projects, entailing an investment of over Rs 500 crore, are routed through the network planning group, constituted under the PM GatiShakti initiative.

Different departments of the central government and states are using the NMP portal for integrated infrastructure projects.

“For the rollout of cutting edge 5G network, department of telecom and state governments are using NMP to identify suitable street furniture for installation of 5G cells,” the ministry said.

Railways and road ministries too are developing projects of road connectivity. Similarly, 156 critical infrastructure gaps serving sectors such as coal, steel, fertilizer, ports, and food and public distribution were also identified, it added.

Further, it said that 14 social sector ministries/departments have now been on-boarded the initiative.

“To create a dialogue with states on their experiences, best practices, and visions for PM GatiShakti, regional workshops across six zones – North, Central, South, West, East, and North East have been planned in the coming months,” it said. PTI
