BharOS : India’s indigenous mobile operating system.

BharOS is an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) based operating system with no Google apps or services. It is developed by JandK Operations Private Limited (JandKops), which is a non-profit organization incubated at IIT Madras.

BharOS is basically a really clean fork of AOSP that offers various security and privacy features. For instance, there are no default apps pre-loaded in the OS. This allows users to carefully choose only the apps they need and trust. BharOS also provides access to a private app store service called PASS. Apparently, it is populated with hand-picked apps that have been verified to comply with businesses’ privacy and security needs.

BharOS developers claim that BharOS is better than both Android and iOS in terms of features and security. On top of that, they also claim that BharOS could even improve the battery life of the device. It will also allow users to install apps of their interest and will ship with an India-based app store.
