59 Chinese companies including TikTok (TikTok), WeChat (WeChat) have been banned permanently in India. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) had banned these apps last year. These apps were banned in India in June 2020. Now according to the report, it is being said that this ban on these apps has become permanent. Earlier sources told Gadgets 360 that the government had sought feedback from all the app companies after the ban on how they were using the data they were collecting. However, now it seems that the government is not satisfied with the response given by the companies. According to the report, the government has issued notices to the companies last week.

In such a situation, it is not good for those apps, which were banned in India last year. In India, this figure of banned apps has crossed 200. In this episode, PUBG Mobile was also banned in India. However, since then this company is preparing to return to India. The company is preparing to launch its India only version PUBG Mobile India in India. The company has also done fresh hiring in India for this. But through RTI it was learned that MeitY has not yet given any permission to relaunch this game in India.

In such a situation, MeitY’s response shows that there is no hope of launching this game in India any time soon. However, it is not yet clear how this decision will affect the jobs of more than 100 people working for ByteDance. However, sources have told Gadgets 360 that after the game was banned in India, people working in India were retained and were playing their part in the global operation. However, what will be the effect on the jobs of people after the permanent ban, nothing can be said on this.

A TikTok spokesperson told Mint that, we are evaluating the notice and we will respond as appropriate. We are trying to comply with the law and regulations with the Government of India. For us, users’ privacy and security are top priority.
