Why BGMI is not banned in India
Yes, you heard us right! BattleGrounds Mobile India is a reimagining of the Battle Royale game PUBG. BGMI CAN NOT BE BANNED IN INDIA.
Krafton, a Korean company, made significant changes to PUBG. They made BGMI with Indian security guidelines and then marketed it for Indian customers.
Despite being a copy of PUBG, crackdown 2022 found no reason to ban BGMI.
Krafton has all servers located in India, and no information is shared with the country.
It does not fall within the security section of 69A, so it was not banned during the crackdown.
BGMI made adjustments to keep the average age of all players in mind.
We all know that BGMI launched after the pandemic, and most of its players were minors.
Krafton created a special parental mode for all of these young players.
This mode provides safety and security for players. It also has a unique verification process for minors.
BGMI has very few violent scenes.
Krafton ended all tie-ups with Tencent shortly after PUBG was banned from India.
They then began marketing their game in India.
It is clear that Krafton made no notable changes or precautions, so it was not prohibited.
