 The backend of the app is handled by the National Information Science Center, a branch of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology.  It will reportedly be made available for both Android and iOS platforms.  If users try to sign in to the app via LDAP, sign in from OTP, and sign in via Sandes Web, they will receive a pop-up stating that this authentication method is applicable to authorized government officials.


For information, last month the government spoke of withdrawing changes to its service and privacy policy from the instant messaging app WhatsApp, which was being done exclusively for Indian users.

 The Center had told the Delhi High Court that the separate treatment of Indian and European users by WhatsApp over its privacy policy was a matter of concern.  WhatsApp was supposed to implement its new policy from February 8, but later extended it to May 15.  WhatsApp clarified that Facebook and WhatsApp users cannot see the end conversations, they are secure and protected by end-to-end encryption.

Why did the colour of my group title change to red ?

If an unverified user is added to an official group, then the colour of the group will be 

changed to red to indicate to other members about the presence of unverified member.

You may see the unverified user in the list of Group members with the name of such member appearing in red colour.

The colour of group title was showing red but has now changed. Why ?

If the group previously had unverified members but either all the unverified members have 

left the group or all of them have been removed from the group, then the group colour will. change to indicate that this is an official group without any presence of unverified members.

I want to reply to a message on group chat window to the sender in private without 

showing my message to all members of group. Can I do so ?

GIMS provides option to reply to a message in private to the sender of the message/file. 

User can select the messages/files received on whom he wants to reply in private by long.
