PUBG Banned In India From September 2020
PUBG is still awaiting approval from the Ministry of Electronics, Information, and Technology (MeitY). Recently it was revealed that MEITY reported that the central government did not permit to restart of PUBG Mobile in India.
Inside sport previously reported that PUBG Corporation executives have been suing MeitY representatives for the meeting for more than a month, but have still not secured a meeting from the government. The delay in obtaining authorization means that PUBG Mobile India will not enter the Indian market shortly.
