Shortly after 59 Chinese apps were banned by the government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited a start-up and technology community to Saturday’s Aatmanirbhar Bharat Innovation Challenge.
Prime Minister Modi said that it would help build the “Aatmanirbhar App Ecosystem.” “Who knows, I can still use any of these applications made by you,” he said it in a post on LinkedIn.
Currently, there is tremendous enthusiasm amongst these tech and start-up society for creating “Made in India Apps” world-class apps, Modi said.
Modi called for “Atmanirbhar Bharat (a self-reliant India)” and encouraged people to be “a voice for local” goods. He said that the software creativity competition is for anyone who has such a working product, or whether they believe they have the ability and skills to develop these goods.
India does have a very vibrant technology and start-up ecosystem that has made India both nationwide and globally proud, Modi said.
The country’s young people have succeeded in delivering technology solutions across industries, he added.
In a twitter post, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Electronics and IT, said the Prime Minister had chosen to promote Indian app developers and pioneers.
All know the enormous potential and the products in scale can accomplish if they can meet demand, he said.
The challenge will take place in two tracks: Supporting existing applications and creating new software, explained Modi, in order to enable the startup and tech ecosystem to accomplish this goal.
The government will also provide mentorship, hand-holder support and support to promote existing applications and platforms across the areas of e-learning, homework, gaming , entertainment, industry, office and networking.
The challenge will result in better awareness and clarity for existing applications to improve their objectives, and in creating technical products to find solutions to technological problems throughout their life-cycle with the support of mentorship, technology support and guidance.
Between the latest technologies that address unique problems in India and the world, he said, is a vast variety.
