The government of India might soon start advicing private telecom gears against using 5G telecom equipment originating from China-based firms like ZTE and Huawei. The central government might also review Chinese-contracts with Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL).
