5G is not operational around airports in India. There's a big reason behind that. There's a risk that the 5G frequencies that operate on the C-band in India can interfere with the crucial altimeter equipment that's inside an aircraft. Thus, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) asked the telcos to avoid installing 5G base stations in the C-band within 2 kilometres from both ends of the runway and almost a kilometre from the centre line of the runway. A few weeks back, there was a report which said that the DoT was going to conduct a detailed study on the matter. Now, according to a BusinessLine report, the DoT is in talks with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Ministry of Civil Aviation on the interference of 5G bands with aircraft radio altimetres.
