‘Sangam: Digital Twin’ – A Leap Forward in Infrastructure Evolution by DoT

In a pioneering effort to redefine infrastructure planning and design in India, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has taken a bold step with the launch of ‘Sangam: Digital Twin.’ This avant-garde initiative beckons industry stalwarts, innovative startups, educational institutions, and creative minds to collaborate and push the boundaries of traditional infrastructure development.

The ‘Sangam: Digital Twin’ initiative harnesses the power of cutting-edge technologies—5G, IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), along with AR/VR (Augmented and Virtual Reality), and AI-native 6G. These technologies are not just buzzwords but the backbone of this project, enabling the creation of virtual replicas of physical assets. By simulating real-world scenarios and analyzing data in ways previously unimaginable, ‘Digital Twins’ offer a dynamic platform for continuous improvement and optimization of infrastructural designs and operations.

With an ambitious vision, the initiative calls upon interested entities to submit their Expressions of Interest (EoI) by March 15. The call to action is not only targeted towards industry giants but encourages participation from all quarters, emphasizing a collective effort in sculpting the future of infrastructure development. The program is structured to unfold in two phases: conceptualization and ideation followed by practical demonstrations. This bifurcated approach aims to ensure that the transformative ideas not only see the light of day but are also viable in real-world applications.

The adoption of ‘Digital Twin’ technology promises to revolutionize the interactivity between organizations, services, and customers within virtual environments. By facilitating a smoother online interaction, it stands to enhance operational efficiency across various sectors.

Complementing the ‘Sangam: Digital Twin’ initiative, a groundbreaking collaboration between the Survey of India (SOI) and Genesys International was announced last November. This partnership aims to generate 3D maps of urban areas and physical landscapes, aligning with the government’s ambitious goal of developing ‘Digital Twins’ for major cities and towns by 2035. This project is testament to India’s commitment to embracing digital transformation in infrastructure, paving the way for smarter, more efficient urban development.

The ‘Sangam: Digital Twin’ initiative by the DoT is more than a technological leap; it’s a vision for the future. By integrating the virtual with the physical, it seeks to transcend current limitations, opening new horizons for planning, designing, and managing infrastructure in India. As we step into an era where digital and physical worlds converge, initiatives like these are not just transformative but essential for sustainable development and progress.
