Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) appears to have secured official authorisation from the Indian government for Krafton to continue operating here, according to a report. After getting banned in India for 10 months, Battlegrounds Mobile India aka BGMI got clearance to restart operations in India in May this year. For those who are unaware, Free Fire, a competing battle royale game has also returned to the nation after being shut down for around 1.5 years.
However New State Mobile, a different app that Krafton owns is still operating in the country.
According to sources cited by Moneycontrol, the approval was given after the company successfully completed a three-month audit process. According to the report, the game will now need to pass quarterly evaluations in order to maintain its approval. These evaluations will concentrate on several facets of how the game functions.
The government’s action comes before the three-month trial period—given to KRAFTON for the game’s exclusivity in India—that was granted by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) in May of this year—expires.
In India, the mobile game held by Krafton was banned in July 2022 as a result of a government order. The Google Play Store and App Store soon removed it. It was outlawed, just like PUBG, and disappeared from India.
If you didn’t know, PUBG was reintroduced in India under the moniker BGMI, which stands for Battlegrounds Mobile India. In addition to the new branding, the game was created especially for Indian players.
