In the proposed new telecom policy, Indian government has identified threat to security of telecom infrastructure due to heavy reliance on imported equipment.

"...Absence of substantial manufacturing base also poses severe long term threats to India's strategic sectors and interests as well as to cyber security, which is a cause for rising concern," the draft National Telecom Policy 2011 said.
