On Thursday, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) unveiled the 'Sangam: Digital Twin' initiative. The government calls it an 'unparalleled venture' inviting expression of interest (EoI) from industry pioneers, MSMEs, startups, innovaters, and forward-thinkers. The idea behind the initiative is to use a technology called 'Digital Twin', that will create virtual copies of real things. Simply put, it will be able to create a virtual or a digital copy of real buildings.




It will help in creating a more planned and robust infrastructure in the country. Through virtual copies, companies or organisations will be able to monitor, simulate, and analyse the real thing in real-time. The Digital Twin will create a digital model of a real thing to help in understanding how things work.
