PUBG Ban: 118 Chinese Apps and Games Banned | Full List
It couldn't get worst, and now PUBG Ban is very much real. Yesterday, the IT Ministry released a press statement to announce the latest ban of another Chinese app in the country, this time the Player's Unknown Battle Ground for all platforms.
The reason for this PUBG ban was said to be - "many complaints from various sources including several reports about the misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India."
"The Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre, Ministry of Home Affairs has also sent an exhaustive recommendation for blocking these malicious apps. Likewise, there have been similar bipartisan concerns, flagged by various public representatives, both outside and inside the Parliament of India," said the statement.

Some banned apps and games are still available on Google Play Store and Apple Store, such as PUBG Mobile, the LITE version, Knives Out, e.t.c. Google and Apple will pull these apps for Indian users in a very short period of time. Additionally, ISP in the country will restrict access to these apps if the user decides to download it on android through other sources. Obviously, you can always get away with this using a Virtual Private Network.
