According to the information of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, PUBG is presently banned in India. This step of government might be upsetting the Indian users, but this lead to a great loss to the Tencent. PUBG in India has 50 million active users and 13 million users who are playing daily. But the action was imposed in concern of providing security to Indian people.

All these gaming, online payment, dating, shopping applications were a threat to the country’s “supremacy and security”. So, the government attempted to ban 118 Chinese mobile applications, including PUBG.

The top officials have taken this choice to boycott these applications because they were engaged in unauthorized activities. The official assumed that these apps are stealing our information and sending abroad without our permission.

The activity of using users’ data was forcing the government to take a strict step. As ignoring such compliant can threatens national security. And, the government can’t accept this risk, thus protecting the privacy of 130 crore Indians, they come up with a decision to ban all Chines mobile apps including PUBG. Almost 59 mobile apps including TikTok, Clash of Kings, UC Browser, WeChat, Likee, and more that has captured the Indian Market were banned by the government in the month of June.

The government also revealed that they will not be going to entertain such mobile applications on Android and iOS platforms. They will not allow these apps to steal and misuse Our Indian data.
