Battlegrounds Mobile India Ban: The launch of the early access for the battle royale title, Battlegrounds Mobile India, prior to the releasing of the final version had a warm reception from the Indian audience, already surpassing five million downloads within a day. As Krafton is expected to take some more days to release Battlegrounds Mobile India, there already has been controversy surrounding the game. There are also demands from certain quarters that the Indian government must also ban this Indian version of PUBG Mobile.

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.
Praveen Kandelwal, Secretary General, CAIT wrote on Twitter, "After #PUBG was banned last year [and] now they are making backdoor entry by circumventing Indian laws."
Now, there are certain similarities between PUBG Mobile and Battlegrounds Mobile India. For instance, in an earlier teaser, it was revealed that Battlegrounds Mobile India will now come with an 'Erangle Map'. In an earlier teaser, there was an image featuring familiar-looking water tank and the mention of the name ‘Erangle'. This confirmed the presence of the map which was also a feature of PUBG Mobile but there is a twist in the tale as the map was spelt 'Erangel' in PUBG Mobile. The reason behind spelling the name in a different way is possibly Krafton's way of detaching itself from the banned game.
However, reportedly, Krafton, is all set to release more slots of the beta version in the coming days. There are Battlegrounds Mobile India APK and OBB download links are also available.
