Apex Council for 6G Mission: Phase-wise Objectives

The DoT constituted an Apex Council to lay down the phase-wise objectives for Bharat 6G Mission.

  • Consultations with the Bharat 6G Alliance
  • Suggestion for R&D pathways and their exploration
  • Reviewing the task progress periodically
  • Accomplishing External Evaluations 
  • Suggest corrective actions, if any

Our Apex Council constitutes Technical Committees. Such committees generate proposal calls. They also address technical challenges through a resourceful PMU. Here, PMU stands for Program Management Unit.


Phases of Bharat 6G Mission

With the advent of 6G connectivity in India, the Industry will tap into the R&D as well as startup ecosystem to bring new innovative ideas. The Government has promised to provide adequate provisions for the needed financial support. 

DoT plans to launch the 6G Mission in two phases, namely:

  • Phase 1 from 2023-2025: Period of 2 years
  • Phase 2 from 2025-2030: Period of 5 years

These two phases will be launched simultaneously, with the former working as a beta release of the technology in the market.


What constitutes the Bharat 6G machinery?

The Mission Bharat 6G is headed by a Joint Secretary or similar Level officer. The adopted structure is a lean governance mission-mode structure. Such a setup enables, during the mission period, leveraging organizational capabilities. 

The Mission will be staffed by professionals from around the Industry as well as research institutions. As for the setup of a Technical Committee, it will comprise the following dignitaries:

  • Experts
  • Researchers
  • Industry Experts

Each such entity will be hired for evaluating funding proposals.

The Government will also arrange administrative sanctions for the Mission for proposals from the Competent Authority. But such tasks will be performed as per administrative procedures as well as a financial delegation.
