“User’s Data at risk”, 118 more Chinese apps including PUBG banned amid tensions at LAC.

USER’S DATA AT RISK”, 118 MORE APPS INCLUDING PUBG BANNED AMID TENSIONS AT LAC.

Chinese apps banned:Expected?, yes! But still it came as a shock to the indian people, specifically to the youth. “118 more chinese apps banned including Pubg”. On Wednesday, the central government of India, notified the people of India that 118 more chinese apps are banned claiming that these apps engage in activities “prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.” 

The latest decision, which was widely expected in view of the tough stance of the government against Chinese-controlled entities, squeezes the dominance of China in the Indian internet and apps space and deals their global valuations another blow. They include such popular apps as TikTok, UC Browser, Helo, Likee, Shareit, Mi Community, WeChat, Baidu, CamScanner, and now PUBG.

The biggest casualty in the fresh round of bans – a total of 106 apps had already been blocked in two separate decisions over the last couple of months – is PUBG, the world’s most lucrative mobile game whose largest subscriber base is in India. Indeed, last year, when a mother had complained to PM Narendra Modi about her son’s online gaming adiction during his ‘Pariksha pe charcha’ event, the PM had quipped, “Yeh PUBG vala h kya?”

Not only this, FDI coming from China is allowed only through the government route.  Additionally, the Public Procurement (Make in India) Order was revised to ban the participation of foreign suppliers where the estimated value of the purchase is less than Rs.200 crore. The Reciprocity Clause was invoked against countries which discriminate and restrict Indian companies to participate in their procurements.

Nonetheless, as the saying goes, “aapda ko avsar me badlo” many Indian startups are soon to fill up the vacuum caused by the ban and the situation will soon become normal.
