New Delhi: The Ministry of Information and Technology has banned 118 mobile applications on Wednesday, including one of the most popular mobile games – Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).
The move was taken by the Centre due to the ongoing tensions between India and China on the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The government said in a statement that this step has been taken on the interest of India’s sovereignty, defence, security and integrity.
The popular mobile game has been banned along with other 118 games under the Section of 69A of the Information and Technology Act. The other apps which have been banned include games, dating sites, online payment services and photo-editing applications.
The government stated, “They are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order” as quoted by NDTV.
“This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety, security and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace,” the statement said. It also added that the move will protect the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users.
Earlier, on June 29, the government of India banned 59 mobile applications which included Bytedance’s TikTok, UC Browser and UC News of Alibaba, and WeChat of Tencent citing security concerns for the country.
The ministry explained the decision by saying that it has received several complaints regarding the misuse of various mobile apps on Android and iOS platforms which stole and transferred the user’s data outside the country.
“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,” the statement read.
The tensions have escalated on the LAC between India and China after the conflict in the month of June. The incident claimed the life of 20 soldiers at the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh.
Tencent Holdings Limited which owns the popular mobile game ranks among the world’s five popular smartphone games having more than 734 million downloads. According to reports, there are currently over 50 million active PUBG players in India.
