Soon another operating system may appear on the smartphone market.
According to the source, the Indian government is interested in such a product and plans to develop a policy that will contribute to the creation of its own operating system as an alternative to Android and iOS.
So far, it is clear that the government of the country does not have any clear plan in this regard. The authorities are counting on various start-ups and academic ecosystems. Nothing is said about state funding for such projects, but it is likely to take place.
If there are any real opportunities, we will be very interested in developing this area, because it will create an alternative to iOS and Android, which the Indian brand can then grow.
It is important to have clear goals. Once we have clear goals and what we need to achieve, all policies and actions will be in line with that.
