However, PUBG fans in India took to Twitter to express their sentiments after the termination of this mobile gaming app. Meanwhile, there are some Twitter users who suggested other alternative mobile games that you could play.

In a post on its official Facebook page for Indian audience, PUBG Mobile had announced that Tencent Games, which was the authorized publishing and distribution partner of the game in the country, “will terminate all service and access for users in India to PUBG MOBILE Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG MOBILE Lite (together, “PUBG Mobile”) on October 30, 2020. The rights to publish PUBG MOBILE in India will be returned to the owner of the PUBG intellectual property.”
Earlier in September this year, PUBG Corporation had further asserted that it is committed to provide its unique battle royale experience to a global audience and hopes to continue engaging with its passionate player base in India as well. In addition to regular content updates, the company is delving deep to identify different ways to engage its community in India through various region-based activities, including esports and community events.
However, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has revealed that it received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India. The compilation of these data and its mining as well as profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures.
Furthermore, the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre, Ministry of Home Affairs has also sent an exhaustive recommendation for blocking these malicious apps. Likewise, there have been similar bipartisan concerns, flagged by various public representatives, both outside and inside the Parliament of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against Apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of the citizens of the country.
