new Delhi. NITI Aayog Chief Executive Officer Amitabh Kant on Tuesday said that all mobile apps offering services in India should follow the country’s data security, data security and privacy rules. His statement came a day after the government banned China’s 59 apps. Agreeing that the country is sovereign in the matter of data, Kant said that the app should adopt a transparent attitude towards their country of origin and eventual access to data.

The government has banned 59 Chinese apps on the basis of their being harmful to the security, integrity and security of the country. Kant said, ‘All apps that work in the country should follow India’s data authenticity, privacy, sovereignty and transparency rules.’

He tweeted, ‘They (the app) should be transparent about the origin of the data and its final stop. India should be a sovereign country in terms of data. This is important. The apps against which action has been taken are lifestyle related apps. In a series of tweets, he said that this is the right time for Indian technology companies to develop technology solutions for the country and the world.

Giving the example of ‘Arogya Setu’ app, he said that it is a unique example of technology innovation made in the country for the country. Millions of Indians are using it. The Arogya Setu App has been developed to monitor people’s contacts during the Corona-19 epidemic.

The government banned 59 Chinese apps on Monday amid tensions in India and China in the Galvan Valley in Ladakh. The Ministry of Information Technology took action in this case saying that complaints were being received against these apps that they used to secretly transport India’s data to foreign servers. The government has considered such activities of these apps against the sovereignty and integrity of the country.
