The Sarkari WhatsApp: Indian Governments’ New Move to Avoid Using General Apps

The Sarkari WhatsApp: Indian Governments’ New Move to Avoid Using General Apps

The growing tension between the US and China sanction on Huawei has forced the government to build its homegrown chat app for the official communication stems. The government is planning on bringing an app that is quite similar to WhatsApp. According to reports, the US tech companies are currently cutting ties with Huawei on sanctions imposed by the President – Donald Trump. This has raised concerns in New Delhi and that is why there is a strong discussion. This is why the government feels that there is a need for a generic app that will allow government officials to access information immediately and also share confidential information.

Also, the government has concerns on the official communication that will be happening on the app. That is why the government wants a secure system in the app and also the government has concerns over the fact that people who belong to the government sector use Gmail and WhatsApp for official purposes. Although WhatsApp’s security is high and it is impossible to breach and collect data, the government still feels that an official app just for the government users is needed in the present time.
