The first indigenous operating system developed in India, BharOS, was tested by Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Union Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw.
A brief about Union Ministers test Indian company Bharos is expected to compete with Android and iOS
The Indian Institute of Technology, Madras has created BharOS, which has been dubbed the competitor to Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. The new mobile operating system seeks to increase user security and privacy while reducing smartphone users’ over-dependence on foreign operating systems.
“Tested Indian ‘Operating System’ – BharOS developed at IIT Madras with Dharmendra Pradhan,” Ashwini Vaishnaw wrote in a tweet. Aatmanirbhar Bharat under PM Narendra Modi has advanced.
Press Information Bureau (PIB) claims that the locally designed OS does not include any default apps, giving users the choice whether to instal a strange app. It gives users of smartphones more control over the permissions and information that apps request from them.
Through organization-specific Private App Store Services (PASS), a selection of apps that adhere to security and privacy criteria, the new operating system will offer access to trusted apps. Users will be shielded from security flaws and privacy issues as a result.
To provide improved device security, BharOS also offers “Native Over The Air” (NOTA) upgrades. Karthik Ayyar of JandKops stated that NOTA updates are automatically downloaded and installed on the device without the user having to manually start the process (company under IIT Madras).
The device will always be running the most recent operating system version, which includes the most recent security updates and bug fixes, he continued.
