Last month, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, in a significant move, imposed a ban on two of the most famous battle royale games in the country – PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile lite, in addition to 116 other applications. 

This move shocked the Indian PUBG Mobile community, as it came entirely out of the blue, Not just that, the title also had a good eSports and content creation scene in the country.

Further rays of hope of the game coming back appeared, when PUBG Corporation issued a statement claiming that it no longer authorized the PUBG Mobile franchise to Tencent Games in India.

However, in a recent post made by PUBG Mobile India on their Facebook page, they confirmed that Tencent Games would terminate all service and access for users in India, to both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile lite.
