BSNL 4G services to remote areas in Telangana

Under the Universal service Obligation Fund (USOF) of the Department of Telecommunications, as many as 61 places have been selected in 11 districts for erecting mobile towers and running OFC cables to guarantee extension of 4G mobile access to rural regions. The goal of the experiment is to guarantee that 4G mobile connection is implemented promptly, especially in distant areas.
Out of this, 41 places are outside of protected forest regions, and the Integrated Regional Office, MoEF, Chennai, will provide the requisite authorisation. 20 more suggested locations for the towers lie inside of protected regions, necessitating National Board for Wildlife clearance in order to obtain authorization. To make it easier to erect the towers, plans have been devised to divert forest land. In order to assess the status of the proposals' processing, the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (FCA) and Nodal Officer, Mohan Chandra Pargaien, conducted a video conference on saturday with the concerned Telecom and forest department officials.
Participating in the video conference were the district forest officers from Adilabad, bhadradri Kothagudem, Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Khammam, Komarambheem Asifabad, Mahabubabad, Mulugu, Nirmal, Nagarkurnool, and Nalgonda. All DFOs and bsnl officials involved were instructed to accelerate these ideas first because of the urgency of the situation.
