Kolkata: In the backdrop of the central government imposing a ban on as many as 59 Chinese mobile phone apps, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a mobile app, indigenously developed by state information technology department, for documents scanning. The app is named - 'Self Scan'.

The Bengal Chief Minister, while launching the app from Nabanna - the state secretariat, said 'it reflects patriotism'. 

"I always wanted to use an application that has been developed within the country. It reflects patriotism. What Bengal thinks today, the whole world thinks tomorrow," Mamata said after launching the app. 

The Chief Minister said that the application will be made available on the app store and will be free and completely safe. 

"Self Scan is a completely safe and a protected app. No data is saved on the server. Documents can be edited too on the application besides the scanning feature," she added.
