India’s second digital strike on China: 47 more apps banned

New Delhi: The Indian government banned 47 more Chinese apps, after 59 China-based apps were banned in June-end. These 47 apps were acting as clones of the 59 Chinese apps that were banned earlier.

The development came just days after the Indian government warned the makers of the banned 59 apps of Chinese origin, strictly comply with the ban order.

The government said that those violating the order would face serious action, as per sources.

The government had issued the order to ban 59 apps with Chinese links on June 29, stating that these were prejudicial to sovereignty, integrity and security of the country. The banned apps included popular ones like TikTok, CamScanner, SHAREit and UC Browser.
