India bans 43 more Chinese apps to preserve sovereignty and integrity; full list here


The Indian government and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology are cracking down on Chinese apps and the streak continues. After banning several popular Chinese apps, including PUBG, TikTok and over a hundred others, the Indian government has further blocked 43 new Chinese apps from being accessed by Indian users.

The decision to ban 43 apps of Chinese origin was after taking into account inputs regarding these apps for “engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order,”MeitY said in a statement.

“Government is committed to protect the interests of citizens and sovereignty and integrity of India on all fronts and it shall take all possible steps to ensure that,” the Indian government said in a statement on Tuesday.
