The government has informed the Parliament that it is considering developing and strengthening its own mobile app store.

According to the government, India’s first indigenously developed Appstore, ‘Mobile Seva Appstore’ hosts more than 965 live apps from various domains and categories of public services.

The government is of the view that there has to be a proper Indian App Store for hosting apps free of cost in the initial stages. And hence, the Mobile Seva App Store was developed, which besides hosting government apps is also encouraging private apps to come on board.
