The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has written a letter to Union IT & Communication Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad demanding ban on Battlegrounds Mobile India because it is “not only a threat to national sovereignty and security of India but also harmful for young generations.”

In its letter CAIT further wrote, "We have been informed that despite being marketed as an Indian game, made only for Indian users, the data will be transferred to Singapore and other regions and that non-Indians will be applicable to users as governing law. The app will also have multiple features from the banned version."
On the website, Krafton, the developer of the game, regarding the usage of the information collected stated that they use the collected information for a variety of purposes, primarily, to provide the Game and the Service (collectively, the “Game Service”) to players and to improve the quality of the Game Service.
Krafton has also issued a statement where it stated that they are implementing the industry's toughest standard for data security and is working to overcome any shortcomings throughout the early access testing period, for the official launch of the Battlegrounds Mobile India. With player's privacy and data security and protection being their top priority, Krafton is taking the concerns raised very seriously and has taken immediate and concrete action to address the issue.
Thus, the data shared to third parties is only to enable the features of the game. Furthermore, Krafton will continue to closely monitor and protect any data being transferred to unexpected and restricted IP addresses prior to the official launch.
