The state now has an answer to at least one of the 59 Chinese apps now banned in India. Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday announced that the state IT department has devised an indigenous self-scan app that can match the services provided by CamScanner, a Chinese app.
“One can now take a photo of a document and use the app to scan it. It serves two purposes. The document remains in the phone and its confidentiality is maintained. There is no scope of confidential data being passed on to any other server. It is completely protected, personal and free of cost. It is consumer-savvy. It stands for swadeshiana,” the CM said.
Even as the CM didn’t name the app earlier in use, Banerjee said the government had found its own way towards self-reliance without talking much about Atmanirbhar Abhiyan. The announcement came hours after BJP president JP Nadda harped on the PM’s Atmanirbhar Abhiyan in his virtual rally.
