India bans Chinese apps

In an extensive crackdown that began at the beginning of February of this year, the Central Government of India banned and limited 138 betting applications and 94 loan lending apps with ties to China on an “urgent” and “emergency” basis.

When it was discovered that these applications violate Section 69 of the IT Act because they include material harmful to India’s sovereignty and integrity, legal action was taken. Legal action was launched when it was found that these applications fall under Section 69 of the IT Act because they include content damaging to India’s sovereignty and integrity.

Several accusations of harassment and extortion of regular people who had secured modest loans through the mobile applications run by such businesses and people served as the basis for the decision to outlaw these apps. It was found that the Chinese nationals who created these apps employed Indians and gave them operational director roles.

Inputs claim that people in need are coerced into taking out loans and that the interest is then raised by up to 3,000% annually. It is important to note that in 2022, the Central government outlawed 54 Chinese apps that threatened the security of the country. Also, 270 apps have been blocked by the authorities since 2020, it should be noted.
