Reaction on 43 apps banned in India from Mr. Teja Gudluru, Founder & CEO, UDo-now app

Mr. Teja Gudluru, Founder & CEO, UDo-now.com

“The another ban on 43 Chinese apps is a welcome move by the Govt. of India and the IT Ministry. I think this is a strong move by the government that sends out a strong message that Indian data cannot be compromised. We welcome anyone to do business here, but Indian users data must be protected through safe means. There are many apps in the market, which can be better alternatives of Chinese apps like –AliExpress, CamCard etc. During the last two times ban on apps home grown apps have seen a huge increase in the number of downloads. Domestic applications developers recruited and this opportunity has also opened up the job market under the segment which will eventually have an added boost to the Indian economy. During the lockdown and even at the time when people are fighting this pandemic, many have been facing  depression and mental health challenges. In this scenario technology plays a vital role. It can provide entertainment options like games etc. which is on a rise, online education has seen a spurt as well. Skill enhancement has been one of the key priorities of people. Additionally, engaging with family members, even consulting doctors & counsellors has been taking place digitally.
