Great news for all PUBG lovers across India as Krafton has announced the return of PUBG Mobile in India but this time it will come in India by the name of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA in short BGMI. The South Korean Development company Krafton which is the parent company of PUBG Mobile has officially announced the return of PUBG Mobile in India on the 7th of May 2021.
PUBG Mobile was banned by the Government of India back on 2nd September 2020 along with 117 other Chinese apps like Apus Launcher, Rules of Survival, and much more.
Why PUBG Mobile got Banned
The PUBG Mobile ban was imposed as an action to oppose the India-China disputes at territorial borders after Chinese troops invasion at Paogong Tso in eastern Ladakh. This ban was the third phase and proved to be a major part of India’s Digital Air Strike on China .Government of India had banned 59 and 47 other chinese apps including popular app TikTok , CamScanner , Shein and much more during its 2 earlier phases.
This ban was brought by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) under the Information Technology Rules 2009 ( Procedure & Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public ). Several reports from The Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre and other sources claimed the misuse of several Chinese apps, including PUBG which steal and secretly transfer data surreptitiously to server locations outside of India. There have been claims that these apps were involved in activities that are prejudicial to India’s Defence, State security, etc.
