The ban of 59 Chinese Apps by India is a surgical strike with IT Act 2000Indian Government has banned 59 Chinese apps under the IT Act 2000. This move is aimed to strike down Chinese IT companies. The banned apps list includes TikTok, UC Browser, ShareIt, We Chat, etc.
This ban is mainly the result of the recently increased tension on the LAC. This decision of GOI will surely affect Chinese apps financially. But the main motive behind this ban is said to be for the security of data. Government of India wants to protect data of Indian people from any possible data theft if any war-like situation arises.
Please share your opinion about this strong decision by the Government Of India.
