The Digital Infrastructure Providers Association (DIPA), a prominent industry body representing telecom infrastructure providers, has reached out to the Chief Secretaries of Punjab, Uttarakhand, Haryana, and Himachal Pradesh to seek their timely support amidst the ongoing flood situation affecting districts in these states.

To ensure uninterrupted telecom operations and round-the-clock connectivity during heavy rainfall and floods, DIPA has requested certain measures to be implemented. These include unrestricted access for telecom personnel to reach telecom sites, availability of diesel for telecom towers, provision of power supply, deployment of Cell on Wheels (COW) units, and contact details of dedicated Nodal Officers from relevant departments such as Electricity, Home (Police), and Petroleum. These officers would be the point of contact for any support required in addressing telecom infrastructure issues during this challenging period.

These measures include arrangements for additional power backup, battery banks, spare parts, and stocking of diesel.
