It has to be noted that PUBG Mobile was banned in India in September 2020 under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. 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.” Furthermore, CAIT has also asked Google not to allow Battlegrounds Mobile India developers to use Google Play store platform for the game.
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."
In response to the multiple concerns on data transfer, Battlegrounds Mobile India has issued a statement on its official website on June 22, 2021. It stated, "KRAFTON, Inc., the creator of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA and the owner of the blockbuster IP - PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, is working to fully comply with the Indian laws and regulations as we lead up to the official launch of BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA."
The statement further said that Krafton is 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.
