DoT Unveils New Initiative to Propel MSMEs and Startups into Industry 4.0 Era

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has announced a groundbreaking initiative designed to support Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and startups in their journey towards embracing cutting-edge Industry 4.0 technologies. This initiative includes a call for proposals for a “Industry 4.0 Baseline Survey among MSMEs,” aligning with the broader mission of driving digital transformation and preparing industries for the upcoming 5G and 6G technologies.

The survey aims to identify the challenges MSMEs face in adopting Industry 4.0 and utilizing advanced technologies such as AI, IoT, and cloud computing, along with the integration of 5G and 6G networks. By focusing on at least 10 different sectors, the survey will highlight sector-specific needs and preferences, fostering a diverse and robust ecosystem to enhance innovation and competitiveness.

Over a 60-day period, the survey will cover five sectors each in the northern and southern regions of India. The findings will provide crucial recommendations for policy interventions, aiming to facilitate the transformative adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies, thereby boosting the competitive edge and survivability of MSMEs.

Organizations and startups are encouraged to submit their proposals by June 11, 2024, to be part of this transformative survey. For submission guidelines and additional details, visit the provided link.
