Under the new rules, smartphone makers will have to provide an uninstall option and new models will be checked for compliance by a lab authorized by the Bureau of Indian Standards agency, two people with knowledge of the plan said.

The government is also considering mandating screening of every major operating system update before it is rolled out to consumers, one of the people said.

The closed-door meeting was attended by representatives from Xiaomi, Samsung, Apple and Vivo, the meeting record shows.

The government has decided to give smartphone makers a year to comply once the rule comes into effect, the date for which has not been fixed yet, the document added.

Goodluck getting Android 14 or any iOS update. Every OS update is going to take a year. Every new phone will take at least 2 years to launch in India. Jai HO.

Any locally stored porn will be heavily blurred and nearby cops will be alerted.
Making use of any other sim other than Jio will degrade phone performance by 69%.
