PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile lite are two of the most famous battle royale titles on the mobile platform not just in the Indian sub-continent, but across the world. In early September, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology imposed a ban on 118 apps and games, which included both the battle royale titles.

A beacon of hope appeared for the users when PUBG Corporation announced that it would no longer authorize the PUBG Mobile franchise to Tencent Games in India.

Also, the LinkedIn post by them regarding the hiring of a 'Corporate Development Division Manager for the Indian region' increased the hopes of the players of a possible return. However, on October 29th. PUBG Mobile confirmed the shutdown of Indian server via a social media post, leaving users in dismay.

Despite the ban being in effect, some players were still able to access the servers of the game. However, a few days back, PUBG Mobile on their official Facebook page announced that Tencent Games is going to terminate all access to the game for the users in the country.

Now, whenever the players are trying to access the game, an error message stating "Server is busy, please try again later. Error code: restrict-area" appears on their screens.
