Government of India again Bans 43 Chinese Apps including Ali Express

Government of India bans 43 Chinese mobile apps by restricting their access to users in India, under section 69A of the Information Technology Act.

The news broke out via a press release, by Government stating, “This action was taken based on the inputs regarding these apps for engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.” The order was issued based on comprehensive reports received from Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Center, Ministry of Home Affairs.
