Case Study

THEPRINT FEB-2021 India’s cloud-based Co-WIN application is a “necessity” to implement the novel coronavirus vaccination programme, said Ram Sewak Sharma, chairman of Empowered Group on Technology and Data Management to combat Covid-19, as he dismissed privacy and security concerns around the app.


In an interview to ThePrint, Sharma said, “This (technology like CoWIN) is something that has to be done. It isn’t just something that is a fashion or something someone wants to do because it looks very elegant. It is a necessity. Without that, you cannot understand such programmes.”
