The Indian government on Tuesday banned 43 mobile apps, many of them Chinese, in India under section 69A of the IT Act. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology said that the action was taken based on the inputs regarding these apps for engaging in ‘activities that are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.’

The move comes months after the government first blocked access to 59 mobile apps in June 2020 and then extended the ban to 118 more apps in September 2020. This totals to 177 apps. With the latest apps being banned, the total number of apps being banned in India stands at 220.

All these apps were banned under section 69A of the Information Technology Act. “Government is committed to protect the interests of citizens and sovereignty and integrity of India on all fronts and it shall take all possible steps to ensure that,” the PIB press release stated explaining why these apps have been banned.
