Earlier this month, PM Modi had launched the 5G technology at India Mobile Congress 2022 in New Delhi.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday highlighted the benefits of 5G services and said that “we have entered the 5G era”. Addressing the Chintan Shivir of home ministers of states via video conferencing, PM Modi said that “with 5G, there will be manifold improvement in facial recognition technology, automatic number plate recognition technology, drone and also CCTV technology”.
The PM also highlighted the importance of having a smart law and order system at par with advanced technologies – stating that law enforcement agencies have to be “10 steps ahead of the crime world.”
“With the advancement in 5G technology, awareness is equally important. It is to ensure that India’s law and order system becomes smart. Technology not only helps in the prevention of crimes but also in crime investigation. We will have to be 10 steps ahead of the crime world,” he said.
PM Modi further added, “With technology, criminals now have increased their power to commit crimes. Criminals beyond the border are misusing technology. Be it cybercrime or the usage of drone technology for the smuggling of weapons or drugs, we will have to keep working on new technology against them.”
