TikTok, WeChat and 57 other Chinese apps to be permanently banned in country

India Government has reportedly decided to ban 59 Chinese apps including TikTok and WeChat permanently. According to the recent report, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has issued a new notification to TikTok, WeChat, Bytedance, UC browser, and other apps to impose a permanent ban in India.

“The government is not satisfied with the response/explanation given by these companies. Hence, the ban for these 59 apps is permanent now,” Livemint quoted.

There is a tussle going on between India and China for a long time. Amid this dispute, the Government of India had initially banned 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok, WeChat, citing data privacy and security concerns in June 2020. In the last six months, the total banned Chinese apps tally went up to 208.

TikTok had communicated with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology to resolve the issue, but now it seems that there is no resolution. It also means that the Google Play and App Store will continue to suspended access to these apps in India.
