PUBG Mobile India yet to get govt approval for India launch, says report


There is bad news for those waiting very much for the comeback of PUBG Mobile in India. Reportedly, the Ministry of Electronics and Information technology (MEITY) has verified that PUBG Corporation has not been given any permission to re-start operations in India.

According to an InsideSport report, the ministry has said that any new company that has been banned in India, cannot just resume its operations by simply floating a replacement company. If this is often allowed for PUBG then the other banned companies could also see this as a chance to re-start in India.

“Any banned entity can’t operate just by floating a new company. This even Tik Tok or anyone else can do. They’re going to need to get permissions from MEITY to work once more in India,” notes the report.

Aiming to launch a replacement PUBG Mobile game in India, Corporation has registered as a replacement entity called PUBG Mobile with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs on November 21. The report suggests that the newly registered company wants to come back to India and is also able to suits the govt norms.

To recall, PUBG alongside few more apps was banned in September this year in India for its link with China thanks to security reasons. The web game had nearly 50 million users in India at the time of its ban and it had been one of the highest downloaded titles in India at that point.

The sport features a huge fan level within the country and other people are desperately expecting its comeback ever since then.

The company within early November had expressed its purpose to form a comeback within the country with a replacement entity PUBG Mobile. It had told The Verge that the new entity would “maximize data security and cater to local preferences.

” If the corporate gets an approval from the MEITY then the PUBG Mobile India is going to be at first available just for Android users only. IOS users may catch on a couple of days later.

It is now clear that the comeback of PUBG Mobile is merely possible after it gets approval from MEITY. It’s an equivalent ministry that had banned the corporate in the first place. To work in India, PUBG Mobile India needs all the govt compliances including a GST number which is essentially a singular number that each new organization and business get.

It would also need a PAN number which may be obtained by the tax India e-filing website or using the GSTIN (Goods and repair Tax registration number) of the corporate. The most vital point of all is that PUBG will need to be extra sure and careful that no user data is compromised.
