India Imposes Permanent Ban On 59 Chinese Apps Including TikTok
The Indian government has issued a notice to permanently ban 59 Chinese apps including TikTok, WeChat and UC Browser. Reportedly, the Centre has taken the decision after the Chinese companies failed to provide convincing explanations before the authorities. India had first imposed the ban in June 2020 citing that the apps were detrimental to "sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."
