SFLC.IN’s letter to MeitY regarding fully open sourcing Aarogya Setu

The Aarogya Setu’s Android source code was open sourced and made available on GitHub Repository with much fan-fare on 26thMay, 2020 to be in line with India’s policy on Open Source Software.

However, only the source code of the client side of Android and iOS version has been made available. The server side code is yet to be made available despite the release of Aarogya Setu’s Android source code two months back. The Press Information Bureau’s Press Release dated 26.05.2020 had also stated that the iOS source code of Aarogya Setu will be released within the next two weeks and subsequently, the server code will be released as well. However, Android and iOS source codes are not fully open source yet, and source code of KaiOS app has not been released even after almost three months of open sourcing of Android client side source code.

SFLC.IN wrote to Hon’ble Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad urging him to fully open source Aarogya Setu and to be in compliance with the princuple of transparency, privacy and security as well as the Open Source Software Policy of the Government of India.
