PUBG Mobile still awaits green light from Ministry of Electronics and Information technology
"there is no change in that stance at this stage".
It all started when PUBG Mobile announced a comeback in the lands of India in the second week of November after the game was announced banned in India in September. PUBG Mobile has come a long way, slashing ties with the Chinese giant Tencent and incorporating Microsoft Azure to host data which will be stored locally.
PUBG Corporation announced that a region-specific version will be launched called as 'PUBG Mobile India'. A few short video teasers were also dropped on social of PUBG India in the time of Diwali. However, its been another two weeks and the fans are still waiting for the release, and in the meantime, PUBG Mobile registered a company with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs on 21st November complying with the government guidelines. The newly registered entity hosts two directors Kumar Krishnan Iyer and Sean (Hyunil) Sohn.
There is still no official word when exactly will the game be out. Although, there have been plenty of rumours around PUBG Mobile India every single day which now seems to be put at rest.
A fresh report from the InsideSport states that they were able to crack a few words with a source from the Ministry of Electronics and Information technology (MEITY). “Any banned entity can’t operate just by floating a new company. This even Tik Tok or anyone else can do. They will have to get permissions from MEITY to operate once again in India”, said the source.
This proves that, despite all the attempts in the right direction, the game still awaits the green light from the government. For the time being the source confirms that "there is no change in that stance at this stage" in the return progress for the game.
Once the permission is granted MEITY, it will return in no time restarting operation in India. PUBG Mobile India needs to complete all the Government compliances and most importantly make sure that the data is not compromised - the same reason on which the game was eradicated from the grounds of India.
