India’s digital strike against China; 59 applications including TikTok-Helo banned

New Delhi: Taking a big decision against China, the Indian government has banned 59 Chinese apps. It also includes the apps TikTok and Halo. The Ministry of Information Technology has banned these 59 Chinese mobile apps under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. The Ministry has issued a notice stating that these 59 Chinese apps were engaged in activities which are a threat to India’s sovereignty and integrity, defense of India, security of the state and public order. In such a situation, it has been decided to ban these apps.

There have been allegations even earlier on Chinese applications of stealing Indian data and sending it to Chinese servers. The ministry says that in the last few days, the Ministry of Information Technology has received several complaints from various sources, stating that these Chinese apps available on Android and iOS steal and misuse their data without the knowledge of the users. At the same time, users are sending their data in an unauthorized manner to those servers which are located outside India.

The ministry says that the data of 130 crore Indians was under threat, which is a matter of grave concern. It has been told in the notice that the Indian Cyber ​​Crime Coordination Center and the Ministry of Home Affairs have also sent a recommendation to ban these apps. Apart from this, complaints have also been received from the citizens and public representatives of the country against these apps.
