In his Mann Ki Baat broadcast, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised some of the apps that were part of the AatmaNirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge. He mentioned that around 7,000 entries were received — most of which were developed by young entrepreneurs from Tier-II and Tier-III cities.
The AatmaNirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge received entries under nine categories — Office Productivity and Work from Home, Social Networking, E-Learning, Entertainment, Health and Wellness, Business including Agritech and Fintech, News, Games, and Others.
