The government of India has banned the massively popular PUBG Mobile, along with other 117 Chinese apps which includes WeChat on September 02, 2020.

The government of India has claimed these apps including PUBG Mobile to be malicious and has taken action under the Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. The government further adds that these apps "[they] are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order".

“[These apps have been] banned under the section 69A of the Information Technology Act read with the relevant provisions of the Information Technology Rules 2009 and in view of the emergent nature of threats has decided to block 118 mobile apps since in view of the information available they are engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of the state and public order”, states the official press release by the IT Ministry.

"The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," adds the government further.

PUBG Mobile was immensely popular in India with about 35 million players, out of which 13 million playing daily. A whole new generation of gamers had emerged out of the battle royale game. It would be very interesting to see how the community reacts and what further steps does the government takes. However, COD Mobile which was also ported by Tencent Games has not been banned.
