54 Chinese apps are going to be banned in India. It is learned that this decision will be taken by the government of the country very soon. Apps banned by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology include apps from major Chinese technology companies such as Tencent, Alibaba and Netiz. There is also C-Limited’s game Free-Fire.
It is learned that at any time, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology may issue a notification banning the activities of these apps in India.
54 Chinese apps include Beauty Camera: Sweet Selfie HD; Beauty Camera- Selfie Camera; Equalizer and bus booster; Camcards for Salesforce Ent; Iceland 2: Ashes of Time Light; Viva Video Editor; Tencent Xriver; Onmioji Chess; Onmioji Arena; Appalachian; Dual space light.
Freefire, Battle Royale shooter games are often compared to Pubz, one of the most popular mobile games in the world, with over a billion downloads on Google Play. Last year, India banned hundreds of Chinese apps, including Pubji Mobile, TickTock, Weibo, WeChat, and AliExpress.
In November 2020, the Center banned 43 mobile apps under Section 69 of the IT Act. The reasons given are that they are adversely affecting India’s sovereignty and integrity, India’s defense, state security and public order. This action was taken on the basis of input related to these apps for engaging in malicious activity.
Gamers were disappointed after the ban on Pubji in India. Now that the free-fire has been banned again, it is believed that another frustration will be created among them.
