India has once again exerted an influence on China’s interests by adding 43 applications to its growing list of banned applications in the country. The latest casualties include AliExpress and Lalamove. The latest offensive by the Indian government is the fourth of such restrictions, and it currently affects 267 Chinese applications. The most popular ones include TikTok, Mi Community, PUBG Mobile, WeChat, Weibo, Xender, etc.
The reason for the Indian government to take these severe measures is still that these applications have been found to pose a serious security risk, and their operations in India will constitute “an act of damaging India’s sovereignty and integrity, defending India, and protecting national security.
And the public.” Order.” Article 69A of the Information Technology Act of 2000 was cited as the authorization law, which stipulates measures to prohibit applications.

Of course, the biggest casualty in this latest attack was AliExpress, which has been entering the Indian market. In addition, the list also includes some upcoming dating apps and delivery apps.
With the ban still in place, none of the previously banned apps have returned to the Indian market. Tencent has given up its interest in PUBG Mobile, and the game application will soon be rewarded with the support of a new licensee.
Recall that the Indian government announced in June this year that 59 Chinese apps were banned, including some of the most popular apps, such as TikTok, ShareIt, UC Browser, WeChat, CamScanner, etc.
In September, another 118 applications were added to the list of banned applications.
