India likely to block China's Huawei over security fears: Report
NEW DELHI: India is likely to block its mobile carriers from using telecom equipment made by China's Huawei, two go nment officials said, under procurement rules due to come into force in June.
New Delhi is wary about awarding new technology business to Chinese firms both because of security fears and a desire to get manufacturers to produce more telecoms equipment.
A US campaign to curb Huawei has triggered bans or limits on the use of its equipment around the world
The telecom department said on Wednesday that after June 15 carriers can only buy certain types of equipment from go nment-approved "trusted sources" and said New Delhi could also create a "no procurement" blacklist.
Airtel is so stupid to order equipment from Huawei. If it order equipment from Huawei then most of Airtel user will shift to other companies
Please ban huawei and get it from Nokia.
Huawei should be kept out of India for India's own good.
Not just Huawei, but block all Chinese Mobiles and Equipments. Chinese hackers will use every hook and crook method to get access to other country networks..
Then ban Jio it runs solely on chinese cheap instruments... Don't just say big words of securing national interests ...but implement the. Have Jio and other telecom giants remove all chinese instruments in phased manner ... Walk the Talk...Govt.
A grave mistake committed in 2009 joining BRICS and providing FTA to the co unist re gie
Block these Chinese hackers and Bio-terrorists from investing in India permanently.
India created an opportunity from border issues with China, Indians opened their eyes and started to see how to counter China, thanks to our visionary PM modi
Though we have been a little late in banning them as compared to rest of the world, but very good decision by goverment, all chinese equipment for power, telecom and other critical industry need to be immediately banned as they have been used for espionage
We must try to decrease & minimise the use of our enemy countries goods . We should develop our own technology .
Ban China should be the mantra by BJP govt ..they have already infiltrated into sensitive Indian infrastructure from many decades, never too late.
Good. Try not to use anything ‘Made in ‘China’. We will slowly succeed in our ‘Athmanirbar’ programme.
A good move. Due to volumes Chinese goods are cheaper. This will compel buyers to avoid Indian made items. Make in India will only succed if we Buy From India.
India Should also debar Huawei from participating in India's proposed G5 communication network or for that matter any other network. A few yrs. back there were allegations of Huawei hacking into BSNL network.
Need to block all Chinese junk entering Indian market, let them dump all this junk toys to pakiland
The real security threat to India is fast internet on smart phones. Smart Phones are responsible for sexplotation of children, ruining family lives, promoting isolation. 5G facilitates all of the above, just like cancer causing bidi, cigarettes and additional tobacco products, health injuring alcohol, illegal drugs, co ption, etc. There is no loss to India in using 2G Telephone. Civilization ested with 2G and it should be set at the saturation level.
Don't waver. Ban Chinese product firmly and resolutely.
Very good decision but need to manage it till end. Ban all Chinese products
