Techies in Bangalore to get vaccine appointments are using python scripts that ping CoWin's public API and setup notification alerts via Telegram, Twitter or SMS.

All Govts have to understand one thing. Still there are many Citizens, specially Senior Citizens and uneducated or Poor, who are not familiar with computer or do not have access to these things. Govt should have a group of Facilitator who can help such people and they should be available on a call and should come to their home to give service. They can charge some reasonable amount for such service. more  
State government must take immediate action in the matter to stop such haking activities. more  
Can the IT technocrats are so immature to surrender before the hacking technology that they can not catch hold of the culprits. more  
Hand in glove with the culprits. more
