This ban has meant to be a marvelous opportunity for the entrepreneurs and motivates them to serve their customers with the best and great product. With this, there is a strong and critical strategy that speeds up innovation in India and boosts the world of ITs and startups.

The Prime Minister of India also talked about the ‘Swadeshi’ i.e. homegrown among the local consumers. This ensures the small entrepreneurs have their platforms and also have the opportunity and responsibility to serve the best to their customers.

The Indian startups’ who have Chinese investors also have a great opportunity to think big and take their business to new heights by holding on own and making it self dependent. If this rare moment has entered their minds then it is a great time to recognize this tremendous opportunity.

How do the Indian Tech Platforms have the Potential to Go Global with this Ban?

The Indian startups are stepping into the global world and filling the vacuums with extreme potential. The government’s decision to ban the Chinese apps has provided the Indian entrepreneurs an immense scope to lead a world of classy solutions by building their digital businesses. The Indian tech companies are with many of the alternative apps that step ahead of the Chinese app market.

All the startups and alternatives showed that they are the best to go global.

And this step is not far-fetched now and will allow players to spread their wings further in the air by catching this stupendous show.

This ban has proved to be the best in the ecosystem of tech and startups and helps Indian businesses and businessmen. As it is time to build the best for the people of the country.

Everyone knows that there is a huge market for Chinese apps, but Indians can take place by creating some alternatives to those apps and delivering the same features to their apps.

It is a great decision of the government of India as it shows National Integrity and gives a big boost to the morale of the brave bodies’ hearts as they are the only ones who are there to guard our borders at every second.

‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge’

– A new way for the startups & A great future for the Indian IT Sector

The honorable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi has launched the ‘Digital India Aatmanirbhar Bharat App Innovate Challenge’ on the 4th of July, 2020. This launch is decided to see that there is a huge interest and enthusiasm among the tech ecosystem and startups to innovate and develop by promoting the homegrown apps. This is the challenge to the Indian startups to ‘Made In India’ applications that facilitates the people of the country.

This challenge is launched by the collaboration of the Ministry of Electronics and IT under the ‘Digital India’ mission.

This challenge is with the motive to bring the spirit of confidence and motivation for the Indian entrepreneurs, startups, and techies so that they can create some classy apps that leave behind the Chinese apps that have been banned in India.

We all know today working on the mission ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ is a prodigious slot for the entrepreneurs who are giving their best in the direction of efforts and momentum of the hard work. This evolves the apps which can satisfy the market by competing with other similar apps.

It is proved that the future of the Indian IT sector is taking new steps after the ban on Chinese apps. They are getting a great chance to explore their talents and skills to the development of the alternatives. It is proved to be a good option as the apps are made by the Indians that have the titanic capability and are technologically imaginative.

We all have to provoke those star talents that can emerge as a big center of ‘Make In India’ and promote the homegrown apps.

At closure 

In the end, I will say that this challenge will definitely motivate many individuals and companies who want to showcase their talents and knowledge to come forward in the crowd and use their brains to benefit the country. We know Indians have the burning potential but they lack to create some superior digital solutions for the people due to their low confidence. But the PM’s launch and the Chinese ban will fire up their skilled talents for the betterment and renouncement of the country. This is also an extraordinary chance for the companies that can launch alternatives to those banned apps. This ban will act as a wariness for all the Indian tech companies and motivate them to work ethically by following all the rules and making them understand that they always have to store the data locally. Lastly, this step is going to prove to be great and works on both the sovereignty and integrity of the nation.
