Government’s Response To PUBG Ban

After the ban implemented by the government on 118 Chinese apps including PUBG Mobile there seemed to be no comment made by the authorities about the ban’s removal, till now that is.

According to a report from Inside Sport, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) is in no hurry to revoke the ban on PUBG or any other banned Chinese app. The situation has not changed much specifically for PUBG or any other app on the banned list.

According to ministry officials, “There is no discussion within the ministry officially to revoke the ban on any of the apps listed in the ban list. We will stay away from making any comment on any specific company or app”.


Despite PUBG Corp previously stating that they will reach out to the government to find a solution, there has been no representation to date by PUBG Corp or any other related company official to the ministry for unbanning the game in India.

The ministry official further explained that the mere announcement from PUBG Corporation to sever ties with Tencent Games in India is not enough for the ban to be revoked. Let alone PUBG, It seems there have been no discussions initiated in regard to revoking the ban on any of the Chinese companies.
