The second one will help in the creation of new high-quality apps that provide support in ideation, incubation, prototyping and release.

With these, the challenge will help improve existing apps to achieve their goals and create new ones to find solutions as well. Motivating developers, the best apps will get Rs. 20 lakh rewards.

What Can We Expect?

Given that the government is focusing on developing new high-quality apps that are Made in India, we can expect effective alternatives to the popular Chinese apps those were banned in the country earlier this week. Already, we are coming across alternatives to the short-video creation app TikTok in the form of Chingari and Roposo. With time, we can expect apps in other genres as well.
