More Chinese apps to get banned soon, govt preparing fresh list.


The government is in the process of preparing a fresh list of Chinese mobile apps that would be banned “very shortly.” There are many apps which despite of getting banned run through proxies which is why continuous monitoring needs to be done.


The strategy of the government is clear, the process adopted is to follow the apps that find traction in app stores and are being downloaded the most. Once this is done, strict monitoring is done and action taken.


Last Tuesday, the government banned a fresh set of 43 Chinese mobile apps, including the likes of Alibaba Workbench, CamCard and a host of dating apps among others, by invoking Section 69A of the Information Technology Act
