Starting this thread to list down everything that has gone wrong with CoWIN App in practice. It’s another initiative by someone who felt tech is a golden bullet solution to all our problems.
The usage of Aadhaar and exclusion because of it is being tracked on another thread.
First story from a close friend of mine: got the appointment on the app, didn’t get the sms, went to the center and entry denied.
Reason provided: No sms no entry. What did the website say: the appointment confirmation will also be sent through the sms. It never mentioned that lack of sms meant no entry.
Do post your experiences and how it has worked out for you. Tech solutions should be built to be inclusive and not exclusive.
