The government has made a list of 275 applications of China.
The government is currently checking that these 275 apps are not posing a threat to national security and user privacy in any way.
According to sources, these 275 apps also include the gaming app PUBG, which is part of China’s valuable Internet Tencent. It also includes Xiaomi-made Zili app, e-commerce Alibaba’s Aliexpress app, Resso app and Bytedance’s ULike app. A person associated with this development said that the government can ban all these 275 apps, or some of these apps. However, if no flaw is found then no app will be banned.

Government is preparing to make rules
According to the report, the Indian government is now making rules for apps, which all have to meet, and if it does not, then there will be a risk of getting banned on those apps. A senior official said that this is a big plan of the government, so that cyber security can be strengthened and the data of Indian citizens can be secured. In these rules and guidelines, an app will be told what to do and what not to do.
A few days ago, the Modi government banned 59 Chinese apps, including the most popular tiktok. Apart from this, he also had UCWeb and UC News of Alibaba. Also, popular apps like Share it and CamScanner were also present in it.
