Regional Language OS and Software

Indus OS, a regional language operating system, is to speed up marketing in India. Indus OS is planning the next version of the operating system which will have more local features and better translation and transliteration features. they are also planning to open an office in China this year. The aim behind setting up an office in China is to explore tie-ups with leading Chinese phone makers such as Xiaomi. Indus OS, which already has tie-ups with Micromax, Intex, Karbonn, is now looking to expand further by bundling with Chinese players which have a significant market share in India. 

Recently Indus OS obtained round A funding from VenturEast, JSW Ventures and Omidyar Network. Indus OS has been angel funded by the likes of Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal from Snapdeal, Amit Gupta and Naveen Tiwari from Inmobi and Pranay Chulet from Quikr, according to the company. Indus OS, which claims second place in terms of market share in the Android dominated Indian market, even ahead of Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows and was probably the first product for the mass market which enabled access to content in native languages. 

Indus OS is now going to v.3.0 of its OS which will be more "Indian" in feature. It is also looking an expansion in international markets — after a launch in Bangladesh — such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia and South Africa which have the same local language issues such as India.
