Arogya Setu, India’s Covid-19 contact tracing, syndromic mapping and self assessment mobile app is now open source.

Announcing it on Tuesday evening in New Delhi, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said, transparency, privacy and security have been the core design principles of Araogya Setu since it’s inception and opening of the source code upto the developer community signifies Government of India’s continuing commitment to this principle.

He said, it is a unique thing as no other government product anywhere in the world has been open sourced at this scale.

Mr Kant said, today the scale and size of Arogya Setu is 115 million and it cuts across every smart phone and IVRS in 12 languages. He said, in just 41 days the mobile app crossed 100 million downloads.
