In early September, the Indian Government banned PUBG Mobile and 117 other apps of Chinese origin citing Section 69 A. Despite the ban being imposed, some users were able to access the servers and enjoyed playing the battle royale title, until yesterday.

However, On October 29, PUBG Mobile announced that they would be restrictingg all servers and access to the users in India from October 30. Hence, whenever the players are trying to access the servers of the game, the following error appears on their screens:

"Server is busy, please try again later. Error code: restrict-area"

As mentioned earlier, all access to the game servers has been terminated by PUBG Mobile for Indian players yesterday, which is the reason why this error appears.

There is no fix for this and the services provided to the players in the Indian region has been officially shut in accordance with the orders of the Indian government.

Therefore, players will no longer be able to access the game and the official websites of both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile lite, which provides APK links for the games.
