India looks into becoming a teleport hub

India’s Information and Broadcasting Ministry is focused on its goal of making the subcontinent one of the leading teleport hubs in the globe. Experts in the telecommunications industry has been consulted to help transform the industry to make India a robust center for satellite TV uplinks and downlinks, instead of solely relying on other hubs like Singapore and Hong Kong. 

The I&B is already working on a road map that will take into considerations the challenges India will face in its goal. According to the Ministry Secretary Uday Kumar Varma, if the country manages to become a teleport hub, foreign investments are expected to increase alongside the improvement of technology that could also positively impact content generation. Varma also stressed other benefits like a surge in employment opportunities in the broadcast sector.
