According to a report by IGN India, Battlegrounds Mobile India APK sends and receives data to servers in several other regions, including China. According to reports, the data was sent to the China Mobile communications server in Beijing, Proxima Beta operated by Tencent in Hong Kong, and Microsoft Azure servers in Mumbai, Moscow and the United States. According to reports, Battlegrounds Mobile India will also notify Beijing’s Tencent server when launching the game.
Last year, as geopolitical tensions between China and India intensified, the Indian government banned more than 250 applications and websites under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act of 2000. PUBG Mobile was one of the banned games at the time, and it has now been restored to Battlegrounds Mobile India. Krafton had promised to cut ties with China’s Tencent and invested more than 100 million U.S. dollars (approximately Rs 7.41 billion) in the country.
Even the All India Federation of Traders (CAIT) wrote a letter to the Alliance’s IT and Communications Minister Sankar Prasad demanding a ban on moving India on the battlefield. According to the letter seen by Advertisement Shout, CAIT reiterated that the data is being sent to countries other than India and that Indian law does not apply. In addition, it said that the app has multiple features from the banned version, and even the app package of the game in the Play Store has pubg.imobile pre-registered. CAIT even urged Google to remove Battlegrounds Mobile India from the Play Store.
