Innovation in Mobile Application and Development Ecosystem (I-MADE) is an initiative by Telecom Centre of Excellence India supported by Government of India, Department of Telecommunications to:
Yes, I-MADE program will cover software licensing, hosting and support costs of the mobile app development platform, for selected participating institutes spread over 5 years.
The official mobile app helps an institution to dynamically connect to their respective students, staff and alumni and cater to their needs in terms of the mobile app development. The benefits for an institution are as below:
Following are the benefits for an institution joining I-MADE program
The features of the mobile app under I-MADE program are:
Five (5) Years
Once we receive the application with all prerequisite information duly filled in, an I-MADE coordinator will require a minimum time frame of 2 working days to implement the app and share the build for testing and feedback from the institution.
Once we receive the go ahead from the institution, we post it to the stores. Apple store usually takes 10 working days to approve the app to go live. Play store takes approximately 2 working days to do the same.
There is no cost (hidden or otherwise) for the items covered through the I-MADE program.
Typically there is no effort involved. However, once the application is received by an I-MADE coordinator, we would require a couple of hours from the IT coordinator of the institution.
We pull information from your website and other resources into the application and connect with your other platforms to create a seamless experience.
The registration process is simple.
The training sessions for the platform are held via web conferencing. Along with the sessions, we also send training videos post the training to all campuses.
Once the application form is duly filled, the next steps for I-MADE application are as below:
We work with a wide range of institutions, with the smallest one comprising of roughly 100 students. We offer customized plans for schools below 1000 students in enrollment to make sure that they get maximum value out of the platform.
A customized strategy devised by your institution and I-MADE program coordinator will ensure a high adoption rate. Proven strategies include online visibility, leveraging orientation for promotion, targeting key early adopters and capitalizing on the social power of the campus feed.
The app is meant to provide a scalable way to save you time on daily tasks. After launch it will grow organically, with little to no upkeep.
Yes. Non-traditional students are often juggling many commitments (jobs, families, and other responsibilities) that make it difficult to immerse themselves in the campus community. We build a peer network for the school that isn't dependent on students being on campus, and provide a way for students to access important resources, services, and programming from anywhere.
Yes you can see our previous apps. Please visit i-made.in to explore the apps created under the program.
Once the application is received, it will take 2 days to share the test version with the institution.
I-MADE technical team works rigorously to ensure that the official mobile app is in adherence with the app store policies and is approved upon submission.
Unlike native apps where a developer has to write the code for the apps separately for each platform, cross platform apps are more proficient. This is because the apps are written once, however can be compiled for different platforms like android, iOS, windows and blackberry.
I-MADE platform gives the ability to the app developer to edit and manage the code for their apps.

Typically it costs upwards of Rs. 1, 00,000 to develop an app for android and iOS individually. In addition to the development cost, hosting and support costs also need to be taken care of each year.
Since I-MADE is a zero cost initiative, it relieves an institution from the financial pressure of developing a mobile solution for students, faculty, and staff.
The person who creates the app owns the IPR for the app. I-MADE platform does not own the IPR for the apps created by students or institution.
Yes the institution needs to sign the MoU shared by the I-MADE coordinator. The MoU is to protect the IP and ensure that the app is developed free of cost for the period of 5 years.
