Cabinet approves 3G spectrum for Defence
1,900 MHz spectrum will be swapped between Defence and Telecom ministries.

New Delhi: The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved 3G spectrum, identifying 49 slots between 3 MHz and 40 GHz, of which nine would be exclusively for the Defence services.

Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said 1,900 MHz spectrum will be swapped between Defence and Telecom ministries. Government's working group will discuss harmonisation of nine slots and cordless phones' use in nine exclusive Defence slots.

"I am happy to announce what was pending for eight years has been approved by this government," he said.

Meanwhile, Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) cleared two infrastructure projects in Jammu and Kashmir. It also has approved four-laning of Udhampur-Ramban Highway.

Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) cleared the agenda for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's talks with US President Barack Obama on January 25.

The agenda includes long-term defence cooperation agreement, umbrella agreement on energy cooperation (mainly gas and renewable energy) and climate change cooperation.

The long-term defence cooperation agreement with US will pave the way for partnership for the next 10 years and will strengthen defence trade and technology initiative.
