AAROGYA SETU — A COVID born Initiative
India has taken yet another initiative to tame the spread of COVID while it was creating panic all over. Another API based platform to track, alert the nation about COVID infected people around.
This platform has been extended to manage vaccine distribution, vaccination centers, maps and other logistics around it.
Again, the key enabler is API technology. Look at the swagger documents
The mobile app built using this api is downloaded for more than few 100M times.
ONDC — Democratizing the eCommerce
Another bold and landmark initiative for a country like India is ONDC. This should be as successful as the democracy itself.
Already launched in many cities as pilot project and readying to go live across India very soon. This fully API driven ecommerce framework aspires to bring in the paradigm shift in digital trade in India, probably worldwide too.
