Department of Telecommunications (DoT) officially launched an Expression of Interest (EoI) on February 15, 2024, inviting participation in the Sangam: Digital Twin Initiative. This EoI process was structured in two stages, with the initial response deadline set for March 15, 2024.

Leading up to this deadline, the DoT orchestrated a series of three informative and interactive outreach programmes in Delhi, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad, with the final event held on March 12, 2024. More than 30 organizations both government and private made presentations during these outreach programmes and presented their work and underlying capabilities that may be useful for Sangam Initiative. These events played a crucial role in sparking interest among potential participants, leading to meaningful interactions where many organizations indicated their intent to engage with the EoI process.

The dedicated website for the Sangam: Digital Twin Initiative, https://sangam.sancharsaathi.gov.in/, has experienced remarkable engagement, attracting over 950 individuals and organizations who have pre-registered to stay informed and connected with the initiative. The outreach programmes have seen active participation from approximately 500 attendees, reflecting a significant interest in the initiative.

In response to the overwhelming interest and enthusiasm from industry pioneers, startups, MSMEs, academia, innovators, and forward-thinkers, and successful conclusion of outreach programmes at Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad the DoT is pleased to announce the extension of the deadline for the submission of Expressions of Interest (EoI) for the Sangam: Digital Twin initiative.

The Sangam initiative, aimed at revolutionizing infrastructure planning and design through the utilization of cutting-edge technologies and collective intelligence, has garnered significant attention since its unveiling. Recognizing the importance of ensuring maximum participation and inclusivity, the DoT has decided to extend the timeline to provide interested parties with additional time to prepare and submit their proposals.

The new deadline for the submission of EoI responses is now 5th April 2024.

This extension offers stakeholders across various sectors a greater opportunity to engage with the Sangam initiative, contribute their innovative ideas, and actively participate in shaping the future of infrastructure development in India. The Sangam: Digital Twin initiative represents a collaborative effort to harness the power of technology and collective intelligence for sustainable and efficient infrastructure solutions.

Interested parties are encouraged to visit the Sangam website at [https://sangam.sancharsaathi.gov.in] to learn more about the initiative, pre-register, and access resources to support their EoI submissions.

The DoT looks forward to receiving a diverse range of innovative proposals and responses to expression of interest so as to continue to work towards planning and designing a future ready infrastructure for India.
