India to develop its own futuristic computer operating system India would develop its own futuristic computer operating system to thwart attempts of cyber attacks and data theft and things of that nature. the DRDO(Defence Research and Development Organisation) has just set up a software development centre in Delhi, with the mandate develop such a system. This "national effort" would be spearheaded by DRDO in partnership with software companies in and around Bangalore, Hyderabad and Delhi as also academic institutions like Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and IIT Chennai, among others. India currently uses operating systems developed by western countries. In today's world where we have tremendous requirements of security on economy, banking and defence...it's essential that you need to have an operating system,.
Only way to protect data is to have a home-grown system, the complete architecture, source code is with you and then nobody knows what's that.
DRDO is putting in place a dedicated team of 50 software professionals in the Bangalore and Delhi software development centres to accomplish the task.
DRDO has put in place a complete framework on the proposed commercial arm, which is currently in the process of securing necessary government approvals and is expected to be operational next year.
