Government Plan to have a Made-in-India operating system to rival Android and iOS

The government of India is scheduling to have an operational system for handsets that are entirely made in India. The indigenous operational system will act as an option to Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS, the two predominant influences in otherwise mostly unknown space. The government may also pivot to the academic and start-up ecosystem of India for the same.

The attraction has been shared by the Union Minister of State for Electronics and IT Rajeev Chandrasekhar in a current interview. 

Chandrasekhar stated that the government is trying to state a policy that will boost an ecosystem for the industry to come up with such an active system. 

He mentioned “huge interest in MeitY and in the Government of India” to come up with the solution.

Stating the power of Android and iOS and their next control on hardware, the minister mentioned “there is no third one” and if “some real capability” is found within the country’s ecosystem, the government “will be very much interested in developing that area.” “We are talking to people. We are looking at a policy for that,” Chandrasekhar said.

While the government’s purpose is well maintained, a new active system has been aplenty in the past. In fact, we have not only seen new projects being sidelined by the two behemoths every time, but we have also seen inaugurated functioning systems like BlackBerry OS and Symbian arrive at the end of the line. Making a new OS and completing its work, will thus, instruct an intricate plan that raises the hardware as well. Entirely because significant handset creators will have to embrace it, for it to be a success.

The plan for a new operating system was made entirely in Indian departments out from the Prime Minister’s primary goal for the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY). As per Chandrasekhar. the Prime Minister wants to make household champions in each of the top product varieties.

On the hardware side, the ministry wants to get electronics manufacturing in India to a value of $300 billion (about Rs 22.5 lakh crore) by 2026. The goal was noted in the second volume of Vision Document, organized by the industry body ICEA and released recently. At present, India’s electronics manufacturing stands at $75 billion (about Rs 5 lakh crore).

The document also describes the roadmap to amplify exports of electronics from the country. India now exports around $15 billion, or Rs 1 lakh crore worth of electronics to other countries. The government and ICEA now target to raise this by nine times, to $120 billion (about Rs 9 lakh crore) by 2026. “This is the government of India’s objective now,” Chandrasekhar said.
