Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) 2021 is Battlegrounds Mobile India's first major official tournament since the game's release in July. BGIS 2021 was announced in August and was supposed to be held earlier. However, an increase in the number of in-game hackers led officials to call a hold on the tournament.

The introduction of a new anti-cheat system mechanism in the 1.7 update saw over three million hackers getting banned. With a safe gaming environment, the tournament is finally going to commence on December 4. Since the registration process is over, the Indian mobile gaming community is buzzing with excitement.
