State Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar said no money has yet been allocated by the government to develop an Indian mobile operating system.

The government is considering developing an operating system as part of its efforts to boost the design and innovation ecosystem in the electronics and IT sectors, parliament was informed on Wednesday. State Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar said no money has yet been allocated by the government to develop an Indian mobile operating system.

Operating systems play a key role in interweaving applications in a computer or mobile device with hardware. Currently, the market is dominated by Google’s Android or Apple’s iOS operating system in the mobile device segment and Microsoft Windows in the personal computer segment.

“The government is considering operating system development as part of the government’s efforts to create a vibrant electronics and information technology design and innovation ecosystem,” Chandrasekhar said.

Responding to a question from Congresswoman Karti P Chidambaram whether the operating system will be available only in India, Chandrasekhar said the government has no policies restricting the export and use of Indian software products outside of India.
