Chinese Apps: Government Denies Passing Order to Ban


MK Digital Line
The government on Friday refuted a viral message claiming that the Ministry of Electronics & IT (Meity) had put restrictions on several "Chinese applications" in India. 

The message has been doing rounds of the Internet, claiming that the National Informatics Centre (NIC) that comes under the Meity, has asked Apple and Google to restrict Chinese-origin apps on Google Play and App Store with "immediate effect." 

The alleged list of Chinese-origin apps in the viral fake message included TikTok, Clash of Kings, Game of Sultans, Vigo Video, and more.

In a tweet, the government's Press Information Bureau (PIB) fact-checked the viral message and dubbed it fake, saying that the message was not issued by NIC.
