On behalf of the IT Ministry, Minister Ashwini Vaishnav and Education Minister Dharmendra Pal started the testing of BharOS at IIT Madras. BharOS is a mobile operating system introduced by the Government of India, which has been developed to ensure the privacy and security of the countrymen. The preparation of this mobile OS was done by the government in the beginning of the year itself. The special thing is that both Android and iOS users will be able to use it. There are no default apps bundled with iOS. That is, it gives users the convenience that with this OS they will be able to use only those apps that they want to use. No apps come pre-installed with the OS. IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnav also informed about this on his social media handle.
In BharOS, users will have complete freedom as to what permissions they should give to which app. Also, the system will not force the user to use any app. It has been introduced with Native Over The Air (NOTA). It has been said by the startup developing this operating system that with the help of OS, the security of the device is completely ensured.
BharOS has been developed by startup JandK Operations Pvt Ltd (JandKops) headed by Karthik Iyer. He said about this that NOTA updates are automatically downloaded and updated on the device. With this, the device is always updated with the latest version of the OS. Due to this, security patches are continuously available in the mobile phone or device and the bugs are always fixed. Recently, in a press conference on behalf of IIT Madras, it was said that BharOS has been brought as such a mobile operating system, the basis of which is the trust of the users. In this, the user will be given more freedom and they will be able to use only those apps which are important for them.
