Much to the disappointment of battle royale fans, PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite were banned in India, along with 116 other Chinese apps, due to security reasons last year. This decision was announced by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in early September.
The news about a possible Indian version of PUBG Mobile came to light when the developers announced it in November. Since then, fans have been ardently waiting for PUBG Mobile India’s release.

A new leak recently suggested that the name PUBG Mobile India might be changed to Battlegrounds Mobile India. The above post also indicated that a new video might be on the cards.
