The Indian government has introduced a new app for all visitors to the G20 Summit. The G20 India app is accessible to all visitors, including Indian ministers. In a recent communication posted on X, Prime Minister Narendra Modi directed ministers to download this application to facilitate contact with international representatives.
Developed by the Ministry of External Affairs, the G20 India app provides comprehensive information about the Summit in ten languages, including Hindi, German, Portuguese, and Japanese. Additionally, it offers a virtual tour of the Summit venue, which can be particularly beneficial for delegates, officials, media personnel, and others involved. The app can be accessed from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
One of the app’s most excellent features is its navigation, designed to assist users in navigating the various venues within the Bharat Mandapam Convention Center at Pragati Maidan.
Furthermore, it boasts a dedicated section that provides access to press releases, documents, speeches, delegate accounts, photographs, videos, and more.
The app also offers a unique “Yoga Break” feature, enabling users to engage in yoga sessions whenever they require a break. Additionally, there is a Digital India Experience Zone at the venue, and users can consult the app to discover what is available in this zone and determine if they are interested in exploring it further.
This zone even features an “Ask GITA” kiosk, which responds to inquiries about life in the voice of Krishna, drawing from the teachings of the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, using AI.
Some of the other cool features of the app that will help the delegates explore the G20 Summit’s venue and the Bharat Mandapam Convention Center include Language Translation, Citizen’s Corner, Crafts Bazaar, Explore India, Calendar, and more.
There’s also a special communications app for security personnel. The Delhi Police and other officials from the Indian Army are actively engaged. Delhi Police, in particular, is using the Sandes app for secure communication.
Developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), this app is currently employed by inspectors and commissioners to exchange documents and other vital information securely.
The app adheres to a secure internet protocol for document sharing, ensuring that these documents can only be accessed within the confines of the app, safeguarding their confidentiality.
