Kochi: The Centre in an affidavit on Thursday told the Kerala High Court that Indian facilities could sufficiently collect the details of COVID-19 patients.
Large scale data collection is viable with the help of National Information Centre(NIC), the Centre said, expressing readiness to help at Kerala’s request.
Citing the Aarogya Setu application, developed for the fight against coronavirus, the centre said that facilities in the country were enough for data collection.
Details of over 7 crore people have been collected via the application, it added.
This contradicted Kerala government’s claim in the court that no company in the country could handle mass data.
The state government also ruled out any data leakage from Sprinklr.
Dealing a blow, the centre pulled up the state government for choosing a US-based company over the Aarogya Setu app.
Personal details of patients handed over to a foreign company could be leaked in the future, it said.
