47 More Chinese Apps Banned; PUBG In Firing Line Too?
New Delhi: A month after India banned 59 Chinese apps in the wake of the Galwan Valley clash, the country on Monday, decided to ban 47 more Chinese apps, ABP Live reported quoting sources.
The government will soon release the list of 47 new apps, which have been banned, the report added.
The ban was necessitated as these 47 apps were operating as clones of the apps banned earlier. Apart from violating India’s data protocol, these apps were compromising the data safety of users, the ADP Live report said alleging that they were sharing Indian data with Chinese agencies.
Is PUBG in the firing line too?
Meanwhile, an India Today report, citing sources said that a list of over 200 firms is under the government scanner. It includes Alibaba, PUBG, Tencent games, etc.
