India has introduced its own mobile operating system, BharOS, to compete with Android ...

Today, almost all smartphones and tablets have either Google's Android or Apple's iOS as their operating system. However, India is planning to leverage its mobile OS to defeat these two industry titans. The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) has developed a new mobile operating system, called BharOS.

BharOS, or India's operating system, is a paid store service that only provides reliable programs when purchased otherwise. It's now available to individuals with strict privacy and security concerns who want private handling of sensitive information.

The Operating System includes a variety of privacy and security features, including the ability to use only the apps they are comfortable or confident with. According to the Institute, this strategy allows consumers greater control over the applications they have access to on their phones because they may only grant trusted apps access to certain functions or data.

BharOS offers handpicked apps from private app stores to small enterprises (PASS). It appears that PASS gives users access to a carefully selected selection of applications that have been tested to meet business privacy and security standards.

The country's native operating system is a step closer to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's goal of being independent in everything from chip manufacturing facilities to 5G telecoms equipment. According to Dharmendra Pradhan, minister of federal education and entrepreneurship, India's poorest people would benefit the most from this digital infrastructure.

BharOS's release coincides with India's $160 million fine against Google for allegedly exploiting its strong market position for its Android mobile operating system. The US tech giant has also been requested to remove some applications and use their chosen search engine by the country's competition authorities.
