India set to shut doors on Huawei and ZTE

India set to shut doors on Huawei and ZTE

New Delhi, Aug 15 (UNI) In yet another strike on Chinese technologies after China’s border
belligerence in Eastern Ladakh, India is set to shut its doors on Huawei and ZTE Corp. from
participating in the roll out of the 5G network.

A formal decision is expected to be announced shortly, official sources said here on Saturday.

The sources said that in view of national security concerns, India would apply to Huawei and ZTE the recently-amended rules restricting companies from some foreign countries from bidding in India’s communication technology development process.

ZTE Corporation is a Chinese technology company that specializes in telecommunication and operates in three business units--carrier networks, terminals and telecommunication.

According to the sources, the government will hold discussions with private Indian companies, including Reliance JIO on approvals for 5G trials in India.

Concerns have been raised in many countries about Huawei having links with the Chinese government and Chinese Armed Forces and that the data could be leaked to them.

US has already banned Huawei and most European countries have expressed security concerns.

India had earlier allowed Huawei to partially participate in its 5G trials. But because of China’s border belligerence, India was forced to review its stand.

India has already banned 59 Chinese apps citing threats to national security.

Reliance Jio is expected to fit in as it has already announced its plans to roll out 5G network using
in-house technology.
