IIT Kharagpur: Because of the stress on the control line due to the Chinese army, India prohibited up to 59 chinese mobile applications. The order was given in the interest of the public. There is a mixed reaction to this decision, some of them support it while others are not pleased.
While some people are relieved of possible safety risks, others see this as a possibility for Indian apps to strengthen their market position or even build space for start-ups for indigenous mobile applications. Prof. Kumar Tewari, Director of IIT, is also optimistic about the role of IIT Kharagpur in the management of this vacuum through funded ventures and start-ups.
Prof. Suman Chakraborty, Dean of supported research, and of Industrial Consultancy talked about the developed market in order to meet the strong demand for similar products in Indian technologists and scientists. “The ban has just created a market supply imbalance that draws Indian startups to feel empty. In addition , the production of these items indigenously shouldn’t be a problem at all in our technical research.
Take the healthcare domain, for example, and the available technologies of Indian healthcare system and analytical technologists could also be enhanced to include healthcare applications of the highest scientific and technical quality to replace many foreign-rated smartphone applications.
IIT Kharagpur IP Law School Prof. Goutam Saha, Director, discussed how to enter the market as concepts are not IP-protected. “A certain mobile game, but not its design or subject area, may be covered. The way forward is to focus on customer reviews proactively and analyze consumer expectations in order to deliver new products.
The mass-market goods must constantly update their features and be trendy to catch the mainstream imagination, “he said.
The IIT Kharagpur Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Park, Director Professor Virendra Kumar Tewari believed the start-up ecosystem could lead the initiative through seed funding and incubation.
“We recommend demanding that students, whom we can sponsor, submit software development projects. This is not the only certainty, but should be shocked by talent in institutes like IITs that control the strongest companies in the digital world.
