Accordingly, MeitY has not granted permission to PUBG / PUBG mobile India.” “MeitY does not grant permission for starting of any websites / mobile apps / service. Accordingly, MeitY has not granted permission to PUBG / PUBG mobile India,” the ministry further added in response to the RTI filed by the publication.

PUBG Mobile relaunch status

PUBG Mobile was banned by the Indian government alongside several other Chinese apps earlier this year. The game was banned due to privacy and security concerns. PUBG Corp recently revealed that two of their utmost priorities for PUBG Mobile India will be security and privacy of users. The company further revealed that it has plans to conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to ensure security. The company also added that it will keep players’ data secure.

Commenting on the matter the company said in a statement, “To build and foster a healthy gameplay environment, in-game content will be improved and tailored to reflect local needs. Various aspects of the game will be customized for Indian gamers, such as the game now being set in a virtual simulation training ground, new characters automatically starting clothed, and green hit effects to reflect the virtual nature of the game.”
