Following the crises in between China and India PUBG Mobile is continuously becoming a hot topic in India. The news Regarding PUBG Mobile banned in India is trending once a month.
The recent baned on 47 Chinese apps by the Indian government pointed the next 275 apps that are under watch by the government authorities that also include PUBG Mobile game.
Internet today is totally flooded with PUBG Mobile banned in India queries and a list of Chinese apps banned in India today.
But for now, till 28th July 2020, the PUBG Mobile game is safe, that is PUBG Mobile is not banned in India.!!
First of all, I don’t think PUBG Mobile is a Chinese app and is controlled by China; as a PUBG game is developed by Korean company but as it also partnered with the Chinese gaming company Tencent Games Indian government will look further into it.
The first list of 59 Chinese apps banned in India along with TikTok was shared earlier and now in the second list of 47 Chinese apps banned now are yet to be officially declared but this 47 apps list does not contain the name of PUBG Mobile game.
The image showed below is kind of circulated on the internet and social media about “PUBG Mobile banned in India” is totally fake and outdated too. First, you can check the date on the notice and if there is any such case that had happened then PUBG Mobile is so popular game that media would have featured this news.
These 47 apps mainly contain the secondary or light version of those apps banned in the first list for eg: TikTok lite, Tiktok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite, BIGO LIVE Lite, etc.
What if PUBG Mobile banned in India?
Due to the border crises, National security has become a major issue for India now. As we all know the Chinese Government has lost trust due to this Coronavirus Pandemic situation. And now the border issues in between India vs China made it worse.
This is not the only reason India may ban PUBG Mobile game but the continuously coming up complaints from parents and the news that hitting mental states of players may give the reason to the government to ban PUBG Mobile in India as Pakistan government banned PUBG.
Why India is so concern about Chinese Apps?
Answer: In China, the National Intelligence Law of 2017 governs all tech companies that are based in China or are under Chinese ownership. The law mandates all businesses to share any and all information that the Chinese Government may ask for. This is something that is worrying governments around the world, including India. news18
