New Delhi: Amid wide-scale concerns over use of Chinese gear in telecom networks, Trai Chairman R S Sharma has said that India must accelerate domestic manufacturing of communication equipment for "strategic" reasons. While the country has become a manufacturing powerhouse for mobile handsets, the same must also be done for telecom equipment which form the "central nervous system" of sensitive and strategically-important telecom networks, Sharma told . 

 

He added that the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) had earlier given its detailed recommendations on promoting local telecom equipment manufacturing. 

 

Sharma's comments assume significance in the backdrop of growing clamour around the world, as also in India, against the use of Chinese equipment in networks over security concerns.
