Beware of those who use banned Chinese apps! There will be legal action, the government has warned
Millions of fans of TikTok, PUBG, and other Chinese apps suffered a major setback when the Indian government decided to ban these apps and games. However, these fans started looking for loopholes regardless of government directives and started streaming these games or even using TikTok.
On September 2, the Indian government banned it under Section 69A of the IT Act, saying that the game, like many Chinese apps, could harm India’s security and integrity. The government has now warned of legal action against gamers.
The game is still going on
Although PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Laich have been banned in India, there are heaps of gamers who are downloading its Korean and global versions and playing games in online streaming.
For this, gamers are using Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. The service hides the IP address and location. However, playing this prohibited game online could lead to action being taken against heaped streamers, tournament organizations, and e-sports organizations.
Question on the Korean version ban
One blogger told creators streaming PUBG mobile online that it could be prosecuted. The creators, in turn, said the government had not said whether the Korean version of the PUBG mobile game was also Ben. Gamers are saying in defense that the government has banned only PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Civic and PUBG Mobile Lite in India.
Doing so violates the law
Most gamers and streamers are unaware that the Korean version of PUBG Mobile runs with the help of a cross-play function. This means that the game uses PUBG Mobile Global Server and this server has been blocked by the Government of India along with Ben on the game. However, if anyone is playing this game using a VPN, it is a violation of the law and can be prosecuted.
