Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar said that the Vijay keyboard software for Android phones is not mandatory for users. He said this while replying to the questions of the journalists after the discussion related to the Department of Posts and Telecommunications at the ongoing DC Conference at the Osmani Memorial Auditorium in the capital on Wednesday afternoon.
Commenting on the questions of the journalists, the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications said, ‘I will give an explanation, that BTRC has used a word mandatory. This term is misleading. You can keep, install, uninstall, reinstall any software on any Android phone. Therefore there is no need to apply mandatory words. It is not mandatory. For whom is said mandatory? That said, the manufacturer or importer shall provide a software to facilitate Bengali writing. Whether the user uses the software or not is entirely at his discretion.
