New Delhi: The Central government on Tuesday imposed a ban on 43 more mobile applications in India for engaging in activities which are “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of the country, defence, security of state and public order”. The decision was taken by the ministry of electronics and information under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act.

This action to ban the applications was taken based on the comprehensive reports from the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Center of the ministry of home affairs, the IT ministry said in a statement. Some of these apps are owned by Chinese companies including four by China’s retail giant, the Alibaba Group. These apps include AliSuppliers Mobile App, Alibaba Workbench, AliExpress – Smarter Shopping, Better Living and Alipay Cashier.

Earlier this year on June 29, the government had blocked access to 59 mobile apps and 118 more apps on September 2 under section 69A of the Information Technology Act to mark a digital strike on the neighbouring nation with which India has been engaged in a standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
