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.

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.
