ICRIER & BIF Study – 10% increase in Investments in Telecommunications Infrastructure will Increase India’s GDP by 3.3%

  • Proposed impact of US$100 billion investment envisioned by National Digital Communications Policy 2018 could cumulatively add US$ 1.21 trillion to India’s GDP
  • Impacts of mobile moderating, the impact of Internet on the rise
  • States and regions in India that lag should to be fast tracked in use of Internet, to capture the spillover benefits of digital transformation

 

New Delhi, Dec 6, 2018:  Broadband India Forum (BIF) along with Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) released a report today that highlights the Impact of Telecommunications Infrastructure on Economic Growth in India.  Titled Growth Dividends of Digital Communications: The Case for India the report highlights the impact that (i) mobile and internet penetration  (ii) mobile and internet traffic and (iii) investments in telecommunications equipment have on states, on the country and the corresponding impact on GDP.

Releasing the report at the Conference on Digital Infrastructure for Transforming India in New Delhi,Amitabh Kant, CEO Niti Aayog said, “India can become a digitally empowered society and a knowledge economy only by digitally leapfrogging using digital technology and broadband connectivity to enable even higher and sustained growth.”

Aruna Sundararajan, Chairperson National Digital Commission & Secretary, Dept. of Telecom, Govt. of India said “India is looking at 100% inclusivity of its citizens through digital empowerment with the Digital India program. This is a very timely report, far reaching in scale and scope, on the impact of telecommunications infrastructure on economic growth. This comes at an opportune time, when the National Digital Communications Policy 2018 (NDCP) underlines an ecosystem of convergence spanning IT, Telecom and broadcasting and in the backdrop of revolutionary new technologies such as 5G & IoT. While the first wave of largely mobile (voice) revolution heralded a new age of growth and dynamism to the economy, the second wave is now being led by the growth of internet subscribers and investments in telecommunication infrastructure, leading to exponential benefits to the economic and GDP growth. It is critical therefore for states across India to leverage this to ensure greater direct and spill-over benefits.”

Mr Rajat Kathuria, Director and Chief Executive, ICRIER said, “It is expected that the 100 billion dollars envisaged to be invested over the course of NDCP 2018 will contribute over 1 trillion dollars in impact over the lifetime of those investments. Underlying this is ICRIER’s recent analysis that confirms that every 10% increase in telecom investment will lead to 3.3% increase in GDP. And yet this seems an underestimate.  As digital infrastructure becomes ubiquitous and pervasive and communications the norm not only between humans but also between machines, the magnitudes of the growth dividends will only multiply.”

Mr. T.V. Ramachandran, President, Broadband India Forum said, “Telecom infrastructure has rightly acquired the tag of a General Purpose Technology (GPT) with the internet and mobile based communications generating multiplier and spill-over benefits for the national economy. We felt that it was time to re-look and re-quantify the benefits of telecom linked technologies and investments for both, states as well as the overall economy.”
