The Secretariat of the National Security Council is said to have supported the advice (sent by the intelligence services) and agreed that these applications threat to India’s security. The Indian government also becomes aware of the problem and was in the process of examining the risks associated with using these applications. It seems even the Indian government has found these applications in violation of national security.

The ban comes amid the ongoing war between India and China across the LAC region after 20 Indian soldiers were killed and several others were seriously injured in a clash with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh.

It may be the first time that the government has completely “banned” so many Chinese applications. Previously, it has resisted this path, issuing only warnings to make the public suspicious of Chinese apps. The TikTok ban is particularly important because it was just been caught spying on iPhone users, thanks to the new beta update for iOS 14. Since then, TikTok has admitted these claims and said it would not do it again.

How Will Apps Be Banned For Users?

The ban notice must be followed by instructions to Internet service providers to stop access to these applications. Therefore, users will soon see a message that access to applications has been restricted at the request of the government. However, while it works for apps like TikTok and UC News that need a live feed for any purpose, users can still use apps that don’t need an active internet connection to be used. However, other downloads of these applications, such as CamScanner, may be blocked from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

What will be the impact of the ban?

Many businesses start to develop similar kinds of banned apps to capture the market and even people will start using it as an alternative app for their use. Hence, it’s a great opportunity for Indians companies and startups to capture the market in less time itself. From these steps, more employment generation happens within the country and contribute to the nation.

Is the Ban Temporary or permanent?

TikTok was banned in India for a few days last year but returned shortly after the court vacated the ban. But this time it’s not about single app, there are many apps banned for the security purpose the government has the rights under the law to do it so it’s a permanent ban. People may call it revenge for our 20 soldiers died or security reason, anyway it comes to an end. It’s totally BAN… BAN.. and BAN…
