Three apps and technology solutions developed by the B. Tech students of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in response to the challenges posed by several ministries have won top awards at Smart India Hackathon (SIH) 2018 organized by the Govt. of India. While two of these solutions – related to the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Commerce & Industry, respectively – bagged the top Awards and cash prizes of Rs one lakh each, the third for the AYUSH Ministry got a special award in the Students’ Innovation category. The annual event, considered the largest hackathon in the world lasting a gruelling 36 hours, allows various departments of central and state governments to engage with over one lakh technical students from different universities across India, and challenge them to build digital solutions to improve their efficiency and plug revenue leakages.
