The ministry has already invited tenders for the development of OFC infrastructure along two pilot projects: the Hyderabad-Bangalore National Highway and the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, which have a combined length of 2,000 km, at a cost of ?500 crores. The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway passes through 23 districts and impacts a population of approximately 6.58 crore, while the Hyderabad-Bangalore National Highway impacts a population of approximately 3.6 crore. If the pilot project proves financially sustainable, the government plans to scale up the leased OFC infrastructure to 25,000 km in the next three years. The OFC infrastructure will be designed to cater to increased data volumes till 2050. This initiative will significantly boost 5G rollout across the nation and improve the ease of doing business in India, as private players will no longer need to wait for acquiring clearances for right-of-way and environmental clearances
