Krafton created and distributed BGMI, which stands for “Battlegrounds Mobile India,” a popular mobile battle royale game. It is a version of the game PUBG Mobile that has been localized for the Indian market. BGMI’s gameplay is similar to that of PUBG Mobile. In this, players compete in violent multiplayer fights on a virtual island to be the last person or team standing. The game has a variety of areas, weaponry, vehicles, and gameplay modes. The game is an immersive and competitive gaming experience for Indian smartphone users.

 

Why Was BGMI Banned  In India?

In September 2020, BGMI, formerly known as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), was banned in India. The ban was issued by the Indian government due to data security concerns and the game’s affiliation with the Chinese business Tencent. The restriction was enacted in reaction to tensions between India and China at the time. Therefore, the Indian government expressed concerns about the game’s data-sharing and data mining. Therefore, this led to its ban.

The minister emphasized that the Indian government will thoroughly monitor various aspects of the game. This includes user harm, addiction, and other concerns, throughout the three-month trial period. Moreover, this observation period will allow the government to acquire additional data and insights before reaching a final decision on whether the game will be officially permitted for the Indian population.

Sean Hyunil Sohn, CEO of Krafton India, announced, “We are highly grateful to the Indian authorities for allowing us to resume operations of Battlegrounds Mobile India. Additionally, we would like to extend our gratitude to our Indian gaming community for their support and patience over the past few months.”
