PUBG Banned in India since September 2020
PUBG is still awaiting the approval from the Ministry of Electronics and Information and Technology (MeitY). It has been recently learnt that the MEITY said that the Central government has not granted permission to relaunch PUBG Mobile in India. Earlier, Insidesport had reported that PUBG Corporation executives are chasing the MeitY officials for more than a month for a meeting but they are yet to get an appointment from the government side. The delay in getting permission means that PUBG Mobile India will not be released in the Indian market in the near future.
PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile lite are banned in India since September 2020.
