Banned by Indian government
First, let us know about the reasons for its ban. Though it is very much popular among all age groups in India. But due to some reasons it got banned in India. Along with PUBG, many more Chinese apps were banned. Let us know about some of those reasons-
1.PUBG Connection with China
There were many conflicts and rifts with China in 2020 that Indian Government has decided to ban 118 Chinese apps including PUBG. The main reason was that Tencent games, the official distributor of the game, was a Chinese company. So first they have said notice to the owner to cut connections with China. But when it was observed that they had not done that, Indian Government banned that. So it can be said as the first reason for the PUBG ban.
2.Banned under Section 69 A of Information Technology Act, 2000
According to Section 69 A, something which is prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order. So it was observed that these apps are coming under this section. As a result, it got banned according to this section in view of India’s integrity and sovereignty.
3.PUBG- Addictive game
Another reason which was responsible for its ban was its addictive feature. You can continue to play this game 24*7. So this was so addictive that people played it the whole day. No doubt, older people are more mature and take a break. But what for the younger children. They just try to play it all the time without taking a break.
4.Negative effect on health and studies
As mentioned above, it is an addictive game for children. So it was observed that it causes negative effects on both their health and studies. They just don’t concentrate on their studies and keep on playing it the whole day. Also, as per 1 news, a boy also died due to nervous breakdown as he was continuously playing it for a long time. So it can be noticed that it was much noticed that it is bad for health. Thus, it can be said as another reason for its ban.
Now let us know about some good news for all PUBG fans. Though it has not been officially announced yet. But a Video creator has given hints about its comeback through a video. He also mentioned that the Indian Government has finally given permission to PUBG mobile’s Indian subsidiary. This has become possible because it has disconnected his Chinese connection with Tencent Games.
