Search giant Google released a primer of what the Indians have browsed on its platform this year so far. The list comprises top search terms across categories like near me, movies, news events, what is, how to and overall. According to this list, Indian Premier League (IPL) was the most searched term in the overall section.

Given the constant reminders by the government to get inoculated against the coronavirus, most Indians used search terms like “COVID vaccine near me”, “How to register for COVID vaccine” and “How to download vaccination certificate” to get more information around the same.
