The Government of India has banned 59 mobile apps including TikTok, UC Browser and other Chinese apps on Monday, 29 June, calling them "prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."

Ministry of Electronics and IT, in a statement, said, it is "invoking it’s power under section 69A of the Information Technology Act read with the relevant provisions of the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public) Rules 2009 and in view of the emergent nature of threats has decided to block 59 apps since in view of information available they are engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."

"At the same time, there have been raging concerns on aspects relating to data security and safeguarding the privacy of 130 crore Indians. It has been noted recently that such concerns also pose a threat to sovereignty and security of our country."

List of 59 apps blocked by the government of India.

The Ministry of Information Technology also added that it has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India.

"The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," it added.

According to the government, this move will safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users.

"This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace," said the ministry.

This moves comes amid a face-off between India and China in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.

'Political Decision': Experts Weigh In

Following the announcement, many experts took to Twitter to express their views and concerns.

Nikhil Pahwa, Founder of MediaNama said, "This is the very first time, to my knowledge, that the Indian govt has actually ANNOUNCED a ban on apps under Section 69 of the IT Act. You know what's surprising? They don't NEED to announce it. Section 69 allows for secret govt blocking."

"Thus, this is a POLITICAL decision. It has been announced to send China a message. It should not be seen as anything but a political decision. No change in way these apps function over the past 3 months. If this is the right decision, why wasn't it taken a year ago?" he added.

He also asked the government, "What does blocking mean? Does it mean that the apps (from the 59) you've downloaded will stop functioning? Or does it mean that apps will be blocked at an ISP level? Or will the app store and play store stop downloads?"

India has taken a meek step which it will try to sell domestically as an economic sanction of sorts.....They obviously cant take any meaningful step, otherwise the counter by China will hurt India far more than any tiktok ban.
Nothing but a political gimmick. The amount of hogwash this indian govt has sold is amazing. They even made Abhinandan's chittar parade sound like a victory

are they going to ban other indian companies with chinese investment?


From Paytm, Flipkart to Swiggy, big Indian startups are stuffed with Chinese money
Chinese companies are one of the biggest investors in India’s startup space.

The Government of India has banned 59 mobile apps including TikTok, UC Browser and other Chinese apps on Monday, 29 June, calling them "prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."

Ministry of Electronics and IT, in a statement, said, it is "invoking it’s power under section 69A of the Information Technology Act read with the relevant provisions of the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking of Access of Information by Public) Rules 2009 and in view of the emergent nature of threats has decided to block 59 apps since in view of information available they are engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order."

"At the same time, there have been raging concerns on aspects relating to data security and safeguarding the privacy of 130 crore Indians. It has been noted recently that such concerns also pose a threat to sovereignty and security of our country."

Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology


List of 59 apps blocked by the government of India.

The Ministry of Information Technology also added that it has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India.

"The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures," it added.

According to the government, this move will safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users.

"This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace," said the ministry.

This moves comes amid a face-off between India and China in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.

'Political Decision': Experts Weigh In

Following the announcement, many experts took to Twitter to express their views and concerns.

Nikhil Pahwa, Founder of MediaNama said, "This is the very first time, to my knowledge, that the Indian govt has actually ANNOUNCED a ban on apps under Section 69 of the IT Act. You know what's surprising? They don't NEED to announce it. Section 69 allows for secret govt blocking."

"Thus, this is a POLITICAL decision. It has been announced to send China a message. It should not be seen as anything but a political decision. No change in way these apps function over the past 3 months. If this is the right decision, why wasn't it taken a year ago?" he added.

He also asked the government, "What does blocking mean? Does it mean that the apps (from the 59) you've downloaded will stop functioning? Or does it mean that apps will be blocked at an ISP level? Or will the app store and play store stop downloads?"


well done indian .

the recent attack on PSX by bla terrorist which was made possible with sindhudesh terrorist and cannot rule out mqm as well because mma qadeer and black pig of london have agreed to join forces against Pakistan which has links to peepee. batty he/she billo was threatening Pakistani state with imaginary 18th amendment changes and saying that they will repeat 1971 with sindudesh.

these traitors called peepee are at it again. they made al zulfiqar terrorist organisation in the 80's as well. all communist, batty liberals are going to launch the final war against Pakistan.

Thats why I always say Pakistan is not one country .it is four five different tribes living under one flag in the name of Islam.It needs to mix. Punjab is over flowing while Baluchistan is totally empty. Why not move 50 million punjabies there.
So u want to make Punjluchistan so Pml-N get more seats? Punjabis only support Nawaz chor dont you know?
