Among the technology equipment makers permitted to participate in the 5G trials include , Nokia, Samsung, and C-DOT. Reliance Jio Infocomm will also be conducting trials using its own indigenous technology.

According to a report, DoT will shortly start inviting applications from interested companies and the window for application will be open for one month, till June 15. Chinese gear vendors like Huawei and ZTE will not participate in these trials.

Under the PLI scheme, companies will receive an incentive of 4% to 6% and they will be required to invest a minimum of Rs 100 crore. The Digital Communications Commission, the highest decision-making body of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), approved the scheme last year in December.

The scheme will cover core transmission equipment, 4G/5G and next-generation radio access network and wireless equipment, access and customer premise equipment (CPE), Internet of Things (IoT) access devices, and enterprise equipment such as switches and routers, said people directly involved in framing the policy.
