    "The model (of SAI) is similar to commercially available messaging applications like WhatsApp, Telegram, SAMVAD and GIMS and utilises end-to-end encryption messaging protocol," the Indian Army said in a statement

    SAI, which stands for Secure Application for Internet, will be utilised pan Army to facilitate secure messaging within the service. "The application supports end-to-end secure voice, text and video calling services for Android platform over internet," said in a statement
