MyGov, the citizen engagement platform of the Government of India, in partnership with the Department of Higher Education has launched an Innovation Challenge for creating an Indian Language Learning App.

MyGov has launched the Innovation Challenge to create an app that will enable individuals to learn simple sentences of any Indian language and acquire working knowledge of a language.

The key parameters that will be looked into will include ease of use, simplicity, Graphical User Interface, gamification features, UI, UX and superior content, that makes it easy and fun to learn an Indian language.

“This Innovation Challenge has been launched to take forward Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of celebrating India’s cultural diversity through greater interaction among its constituent parts,” the Ministry of Electronics and IT said in a statement.

The innovation challenge is open to Indian individuals, startups and companies. MyGov envisions the app to be multi-modular, with the capacity to teach through the written word, voice and video. App developers can propose multiple interfaces for engagement of learners. The innovation challenge can be accessed here.

The Innovation Challenge closes on 27 May 2021. Upon evaluation of submission of prototypes, the top ten teams will be invited to make presentations and top three will be selected by a jury.

The top three will receive funding of Rs 20, 10 and five lakhs to make the apps better. The solutions would be evaluated based on broad parameters such as Innovation, Scalability, Usability, Interoperability, Ease of deployment or roll-out and Campaign.
