3 reasons the ministry isn’t ready to give the green signal back to PUBG

PUBG Unban: Can India follow the lead of these 3 countries and lift PUBG Ban?

PUBG Mobile India Return Update: PUBG Mobile is not coming to India anytime soon. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) has yet to respond to the PUBG promoters’ request for a meeting according to the information available.

As InsideSport previously reported, it has been more than 4 weeks since company officials requested a meeting from ministry officials, but sources close to company officials informed InsideSport that MEITY has not yet responded to the request.

‘The government has yet to respond to the meeting’s request. The promoters of the game are ready to comply with all the rules set by the government of India, but the MEITY office has not responded ‘said a source close to the game’s operators.

Why exactly is MEITY not ready to give PUBG officials a window?

Reason 1: the government department or ministry cannot have different rules for different entities

According to experts, the ministry has collectively banned various apps with Chinese links. Government departments or ministries will never treat anyone differently. Meeting an individual banned entity will be contrary to government regulations. PUBG cannot receive any special status.

Reason 2: the decision to ban Chinese apps also involves public opinion

Most of the Indian public sentiment is against everything related to China after the border skirmishes. The government will never go against public sentiment by entertaining any individual entity. Even BCCI lost its Chinese sponsor LIVE for IPL 2020 this year. The government cannot grant exceptions to PUBG in the wake of such negative sentiment against China.

Reason 3: the border conflict between India and China remains unresolved

Even after 6 months of the deadly June 15 confrontation in the Galwan Valley, which ultimately resulted in the Indian government’s decision to ban Chinese apps, the border dispute between the two countries remains unresolved. These apps have been banned in order that they could compromise the national security of India. The government in no way can change that point of view for a single application, that is, PUBG in the current circumstances and it may have a special window for the gaming company.
