As per government norms, both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite will be soon removed from the Google Play Store.
What is going to happen in the case of PUBG Mobile is going to be story similar to what has happened to TikTok. In the next hours, or a day or so, when google and Apple receive government notification, they will remove PUBG from their app stores for Indian users. People get to already installed PUBG will continue to have the app on their phones, but it may not work because telecom companies like Jio and Airtel will block PUBG connection to servers receive notice from the government.
The Mobile allowed in India again, it is not going to happen anytime soon. This is because the ban is direct result of India’s struggle against Chinese aggression on border and until that is not resolved, India is unlikely to allow the use of banned Chinese apps in the country.
PUBG ban in India:
Yes and no.we miss that there are two PUBG apps. the game was made for computers by a South Korean company. This game remains available in India. But it can run only on desktop computers and laptops. The PUBG Mobile and Mobile Lite are the games made Tencent, a Chinese company, under licence from the Korean company. These two apps have been banned.
What it means in simple words is that you can still play PUBG in India on a computer desktop or laptop. But you can no longer play it on the mobile phone.
