Last year was anything but far from smooth for the Indian mobile gaming community as numerous titles, including PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite, received the ban hammer under section 69A of the IT act by the MeitY (Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology).

Over the period, several applications and games have been suspended due to security reasons. In June 2020, the government blocked 59 applications. And 118 other apps were suspended back in September, including the battle royale title PUBG Mobile and its streamlined version.

Finally, in November 2020, 43 other apps were banned. This article provides a list of the banned games in India, including PUBG Mobile, as of March 2021.
