Pubg Mobile & 118 Chinese Apps Banned In India

It was only a matter of time the incredibly popular mobile game called Pubg Mobile would be banned by the Indian government in it’s battle against neighbours China. The government deems these apps as malicious and a threat of information leak and the Indian govt banned Pubg Mobile. This ban on Pubg Mobile may result in widespread repercussions in the Pubg Mobile Esports scene as it is yet to be seen how it will affect all the Pubg Mobile teams that compete in esports like Team IND, Team SouL, Team Mortal and many more. Pubg Mobile in India has over 33 million active players with many being fans of the Indian esports scene. Hopefully, they find a workaround to sustain the Indian Pubg Mobile esports circuit.

According to the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the mobile game has been banned along with the other Apps under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, on grounds that “they are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order”.

“This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety, security and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace,” the statement said.

This move, it said, would protect the interests of millions of Indian mobile and internet users. This is not the first time the Indian government has banned Chinese apps, earlier this year they banned around 80 Chinese apps but Pubg Mobile was not banned, people speculated that it will soon come under scrutiny since the Pubg Mobile app is made by Chinese gaming company Tencent. Here is a complete list of all the 118 Chinese apps banned by the govt:
