BGMI Isn’t the First, Here Are All the Apps India Banned Earlier

BGMI, otherwise known as Battlegrounds Mobile India, is the latest app to face a crackdown from the Indian government. On Thursday, the Indian government ordered Google and Apple to remove BGMI from their respective app stores, sending the country’s gaming community into a frenzy. Earlier in the day, a Reuters report quoted sources familiar with the matter to say that the government imposed the ban based on Section 69A of India’s IT laws. While a total blockade would mean the removal of BGMI servers from Indian ISPs and TSPs, the current situation is not in favor of Krafton.

But this is not the first time for Krafton. The Indian government has issued a blanket ban on as many as 118 apps in 2020, fearing that the said apps could undermine the sovereignty and integrity of the country. Basically, India was concerned that these apps were sharing data with China – the neighboring country that the Indian military had engaged in a skirmish with at the time. PUBG Mobile was one such app. Its publisher being Tencent Games, a Chinese company, the government refused to budge even after several requests from the gaming community and PUBG IP owner Krafton.

Krafton couldn’t lose such a lucrative market as India, where gaming in recent years has exploded into a multi-dollar business. The South Korean company has addressed the issues it says could irritate the government. For example, he severed ties with Tencent Games regarding PUBG Mobile publishing rights in India. After several rounds of talks, Krafton succeeded in convincing the Indian government. However, he wanted to remove the negative association that the name “PUBG Mobile” had in India. It relaunched the game last year under another name: Battlegrounds Mobile India. Also Read – BGMI Ban: Reasons Why Indian Government May Have Banned BGMI Just One Year After Launch
