India’s government intends to set up 4G mobile towers along the Indo-Nepal borderline by January 2024. The effort intends to provide connectivity to rural areas along the border and also strengthen security. These towers will be placed strategically along the hillsides for example, at Pashupati, Phatak, Sanja, and Pulkhola where the sites are touristic.

The Union Information and Broadcasting minister of India agreed to address the poor mobile cover in the steep mountains along the India-Nepal border after a request by an MP from Darjeeling. It was highlighted that this place is frequently visited by foreign tourists and Nepali nationals, making it very crucial for international security. Moreover, it was also emphasized that poor coverage of 4G has hampered economic development and communication in the area and that installing a 4G tower would increase security and provide local people with better access to education, health, and other necessary facilities.

In such a scenario, the Nepalese Government should also look at the communication and other infrastructural development along the border area.

Adding 4G towers along the Indo-Nepal border is expected to open up ways for modern communication technology and socio-economic development. Also, this installation will further enhance the security measures, and facilitate cooperation among border safety agencies.
