Amrita students bag prizes for developing mobile apps

Three mobile applications (apps) and technology solutions provided by B.Tech. students of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham won prizes at the Smart India Hackathon 2018, which the Central Government had organised to engage technical students to provide solutions to Central and State government departments to build digital solutions to improve efficiency and plug revenue loss. A release from the institution said three teams of six students each won awards and three others featured in the top 10 teams in India for various ministries.

Android app ‘Niryatak’ was in response to a challenge posed by Ministry of Commerce and Industry. It helped calculate the post-production cost of products being exported and suggested what the selling price should be to get optimum profit.

The second team, Cyber Sena, developed a secure system for the Ministry of Defence to enable easy transfer of data from one network to another through white-listing of pen drives.

The third team developed an app for the Ministry of AYUSH for conversion of Ayurveda unit, the release added.
