PUBG Lite for India?
It is quite disappointing for Indian gamers to see the game getting available to other countries but not in India. But, it has to be noted that India has a big player base, so maybe making the game available for India right away can make problems for the limited Beta servers. However, it is expected that the game will be officially available for the rest of the countries very soon.
Moreover, if you can not wait for the official release, you still can get the game and play it right now. What you need to do is, just follow the simple steps mentioned here.
