Chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee launched a new app called ‘SelfScan’. This new application has been developed by the state's information technology department. SelfScan claims that the data always stays in the device and there will be no storing of data by the app on any server.
"I would always want to use an app prepared in my country. It reflects patriotism. What Bengal thinks today, the whole world thinks tomorrow," Banerjee said after launching the application.
