Hi,

Apparently India plans to build two longwave transmitters for a national
time signal service:

No technical details such as frequency and modulation are given, nor whether
the carrier will also serve as a reference frequency.

They do mention involvement of the German EFR company, who operate three
transmitters between 129 and 139 kHz for remotely controlling equipment
and broadcasting time, using 200 baud FSK. One might speculate similar
signals will be used for the new India service.
