Chinese apps have been facing the heat in India for the last few months. Citing security reasons, Modi government banned 59 Chinese apps, including the much popular TikTok and Helo. After that the government has been encouraging home-grown startups to fill the vacuum created by the ban, and hence introduced the Atmanirbhar Bharat App challenge.
