The Indian government is reportedly planning to build its own WhatsApp-like chat belvedere to facilitate secure communications for government agencies, according to news outlet Economic Times.

The move is meant to reduce the country’s assurance on US technology companies, and ensure that all advice and data transmitted over the account will be stored locally in the country.

This also includes email casework like Gmail, which have become the de facto means for official communication.

“We need to make our advice insular,” an unnnamed official was quoted as saying in the report. “We should have email, messaging, all sorts of systems, at least for government communication, which doesn’t depend on alfresco players.”

The official also said that the US’ accommodation to add Chinese electronics giant Huawei on the entity list “set alarm bells campanology in New Delhi.”

“Tomorrow, if the US finds us capricious for some reason, all they need to do is ask their companies to slow down networks in India and aggregate here will come to a standstill. We are accessible and we must take steps to cover that,” the official said.

India‘s accommodation to move away from accepted apps is not the first time a country has belted the usage of apps developed by adopted players.

France launched its own secure government-only chat app called Tchap beforehand this April. The app — based on open-source messaging client Riot, and accessible for Android, iOS, and the web — encrypts clandestine conversations end-to-end, screens all accessories using antivirus software, and stores all data generated by the belvedere in data centers amid within the country.

With Facebook-owned WhatsApp acceptable the most all-over means of advice in India, the government has again sought backdoor access to the app to adviser the belvedere for misinformation and hate speech.

WhatsApp, however, hasn’t agreed to its demands, saying it would attenuate the aloofness of its users.
