Kerala’s opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala had made a stunning revelation that the ruling LDF Government in Kerala is handing over the details pertaining to COVID-19 patients under Quarantine to a US-based marketing company. Addressing media persons, Ramesh  Chennithala revealed that the details are being uploaded to the servers of company named Sprinklr, which is touted to be a US-based marketing and PR company.

Chennithala added that the Government has been collecting the details of the quarantined COVID-19 people. The collected data divided by each panchayat are being uploaded on Sprinklr. He said that the details of the people collected from Ward level are uploaded to Sprinklr. He also quoted the URL of the website where the details are being uploaded, which is kerala-field-covid.sprinklr.com. The portal is hosted as a subdomain under sprinklr.com.

We visited the portal and found the information. The website with the title “Kerala Covid-19 field Isolation” carries the official logo of the Kerala Government. The contents are provided in the Malayalam language. The portal is meant for volunteers who are involved in the field test.

The volunteers should click on the Blue colored button and provide their mobile number. The OTP will be send the process will start. Towards the bottom of the portal, we could see the content “All Rights Reserved, Government of Kerala.”, which is really surprising. How can a copyright address of Kerala Government appear under a third-party website?

Chennithala also raised serious concern about the possible misuse of the details such as health issues, age, address, and other personal details. The opposition leader also questioned the Government over giving away of tender to the company. He also said that Sivasankaran IAS, who is the IT Secretary acted in an advertisement for the company. He raised suspicion about selling of the data for commercial purposes. He asked for the immediate cancellation of the deal with the company. Moreover, he demanded probe after removing IT secretary from the job.

Sprinklr is a digital marketing company with presence all over the World. The company claims to set up and configure a modern communications infrastructure for any government in 7 days. Moreover, Kerala state is making use of its modern communications infrastructure to battle COVID-19. The company also provides APIs to enable Governments to drive deep into people’s analytics.
