The Indian variant of PUBG Mobile, BGMI, was removed from the Android and iOS stores on 28 July. Eventually, it was reported that Battlegrounds Mobile India had been blocked on the orders of the Government of India.

The following day, on 29 July, the ban was confirmed. Allegedly, Krafton was involved with the unauthorized collection and sharing of data to its servers in China. However, Krafton's official statement denied any allegations regarding the same.
