India is ready to host the biggest telecom event of the year — India Mobile Congress (IMC) — starting today. The two-day event will be concluded on the 16 October, and like last year, the highlight of the event is expected to be 5G, its use case scenarios, maybe a little something on when to expect its rollout in the country.

IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will be inaugurating the event at 10.00 am today, with the likes of Chairman and founder of Bharti Enterprises Sunil Bharti Mittal and Reliance Jio chairman Mukesh Ambani joining the keynote.

In the afternoon today, for the segment called Leaders for the Next Generation the likes of Isha and Akash Ambani from Reliance Jio, Kavin Mittal from Hike Messenger, Manu Kumar Jain from Xiaomi and Vijay Shekhar Sharma from Paytm were scheduled to participate, however, according to a report by the Hindu Business Line, many have refused to attend the event. Apparently only Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Rishad Premji from Wipro and Manu Kumar Jain have confirmed their attendance.

Further, ISRO chief K Sivan is also expected to be at the IMC 2019. He will apparently be making some ‘special announcement’ at the inaugural session today.

The event will also see various demonstration of future technology, and what it can be with the help of 5G adoption in India. There will be demo stalls by companies like Ericsson, Honor, Huawei, Wipro, Vodafone, Airtel, Reliance Jio, among others.
