Disclaimer: PUBG Mobile is banned in India under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act.
PUBG Mobile was banned along with several other Chinese apps in September last year. Even though PUBG Mobile creator Krafton is making efforts to re-launch the game in India, do keep in mind that the government has not made anything official.
The battle royale game is among the most popular in the world and it crossed 6 billion downloads recently on the Google Play Store and App Store worldwide. Unfortunately, there is no timeline on the PUBG Mobile re-launch in the country.
