ZeeNews in its report has shared a letter written by Indian Parliamentarian Arvind Dharampuri to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad regarding Battlegrounds Mobile India. In this letter sent late last week, Dharampuri did not demand a ban on the game, but he pointed out some issues. Actually, Sai Kumar, a social worker, told Dharampuri some problems regarding Battlegrounds Mobile India, which he has conveyed to the ministry through a letter. Dharampuri says that these issues are very serious and the government should consider them.
The new game has been told by Sai Kumar that while KRAFTON promises to store all data only in India and Singapore, the company will also allow international data transfers. In addition, the Game’s Terms of Service will also be governed by the laws of South Korea, where Krafton Inc. is based. Not only this, Dharampuri also asked the Union Minister to look closely at Crafton’s investment and agreements with Chinese game company Tencent regarding security concerns.
Late last month, Ninong Ering, a member of the Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly, also wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding Battlegrounds Mobile India. However, in this letter there was a demand to ban the game. He said that the purpose of this game is to cheat the government and citizens and it should be banned in the country. He alleged that game developer KRAFTON was bypassing Indian laws by launching a new game.
After the PUBG Mobile ban by the government in September last year, KRAFTON took over the publishing responsibilities of the game in India from the Chinese company Tencent Games, although the company is still working as a publisher of the game in other countries. Ering said that most of the employees who worked on Crafton’s Indian team were former employees of Tencent Games, who were hired by Crafton in December and are working on the Battlegrounds mobile India game. He has said that the gameplay, maps and weapons involved in this game will all be similar to PUBG Mobile. Ering believes that only the name of the game has been changed, but it will remain the same. He says this is only a strategy to ease the relaunch in India.
