Re-provisioning of Digital Satellite Phone Terminals (DSPTs) provided to Ministry of Home Affairs agencies (Central Armed Police Forces), Ministry of Defence agencies (Army, Border Roads Organisation, etc.) and other agencies using V-SAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) connectivity under Bharat Net Project:

These Digital Satellite Phone Terminals (DSPTs) are provided in remote, rural, far-flung and difficult terrain where no coverage from any other operator is available. As a short-term measure, INMARSAT terminals were provided to Ministry of Home Affairs agencies (Central Armed Police Forces, Border Security Forces, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Sashastra Seema Bal, etc)) and Ministry of Defence agencies (Indian Army & Border Roads Organisation) to meet their critical communication needs. In its meeting on 20.12.2019, Digital Communications Commission (DCC) approved the proposal to provide Digital Satellite Phone Terminals (DSPT) to these agencies using V-SAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) connectivity. 

 

Status so far

As of 13.01.2022, 1381 V-SATs (Very Small Aperture Terminals) have been made operational out of 1396  (including 124 Ladakh V-SATs).
