About PUBG Mobile India

The government had banned PUBG Mobile in India following which an Indian version of PUBG Mobile was announced in November 2020.

The official account of PUBG Mobile India had said earlier that the game will adhere to the local government laws.

It was reported that Krafton, the parent company, has inked an agreement with Microsoft to use the Azure cloud services for storing the data of players in order to meet Indian government’s concerns over privacy.

The game will also get some changes to meet Indian needs. There will be more localised content which will be in-line with India. Moreover, some violent effects such as the blood effect will also be toned down.

Krafton had said that an Indian subsidiary with over 100 employees will also be set up in order to boost the esports ecosystem in India and local game development. PUBG Corp will invest around 100 million dollar to help esports scene in India.

Why PUBG Mobile was banned in India?

The government of India has banned the game under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act because the app has engaged in activities that undermine sovereignty and integrity, defense and security of India.

India had banned the game, along with other Chinese apps, back in September.
