new Delhi. Downloads of Indian apps such as Share Chat, Roposo and Spark have grown exponentially after the ban on 59 Chinese apps. The downloads of these apps have not only increased but have also seen an increase in users' account creation. Share Chat is the country's largest social media company serving local languages. The company said on Wednesday that its growth has suddenly increased in the last two days. The company claims that its app is getting about five lakh downloads every hour. After the Chinese app was banned on Monday evening, its app has got more than 15 million downloads. It is noteworthy that the government on Monday evening banned 59 Chinese apps such as TicketLock, WeChat, CamScanner, citing national security, integrity and data security.

This decision of the government is being linked to the incident of the martyrdom of 20 Indian soldiers in a violent conflict with China in the Galvan Valley. Farid Ahsan, Sharechat co-founder and CEO, told PTI, "We are thrilled with the way people are finding out about Sharechat for the immense potential." We are confident that this will lay another cornerstone of the success of the share chat. "The company said that it had seen more than one lakh posts supporting the decision to ban the Chinese app. Share Chat has more than 150 million registered users in the country. Of these, the number of monthly active users is around 60 million. The company serves 15 Indian languages.

Another domestic app, Roposo, says that many Ticketock users have come on stage after the ban. It also includes many Ticketock influencers (influential users). This app of InMobi Group is available in 12 Indian languages. There are about 1.4 crore users who make videos on this platform, while about eight crore videos are put on it every month. Mayank Bhanagadia, co-founder of Roposo, said that his aim is to become the biggest merit presentation platform for Indians who are also Indians themselves. The number of active users of Boxengage.com introduced during the lockdown has recorded a 10-fold increase in the 24 hours following the ban. This is a video sharing app. The company currently runs only the website, is also going to introduce its mobile app soon.

TikTok's Indian rival Chingari app says that its downloads have seen a sudden increase in the past few weeks. It has more than 25 lakh downloads. Co-founder of the company Sumit Ghosh welcomed the government's ban on Tiktok. At the same time, Ticketock users were also invited on his platform.
