PUBG mobile banned, over 117 Other Apps also banned

In yet another move cracking down on Chinese apps in India, the government has today decided to ban another 118 apps of Chinese origin. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has put out a release listing all the apps that are now banned in India.

The biggest name here is obviously PUBG Mobile which was excluded from the ban when the government first banned 59 Chinese apps a couple of months ago. This time around however, PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite are both on the list.

As of this writing, I’m still able to launch PUBG Mobile on my iPhone, and matchmaking is working properly as well. However, if the last wave of app bans is anything to go by, the app will likely be removed from the Play Store and the App Store very soon and will stop working as well.

 

The reasons given behind banning these additional 118 apps is similar to what it was back when TikTok was banned along with other apps such as SHEIN and WeChat. The government claims that the apps are “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order: Govt of India”

Other major apps included in the list are Rise of Kingdoms, Art of Conquest, Arena of Valor among others.
