In an unprecedented move, the government of India on Monday banned 59 Chinese apps, including some big names like TikTok, SHAREit and UC Browser. The information technology ministry, which issued Monday evening’s ban order, had cited concerns that the 59 applications are ‘prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order’. In today’s episode of Tech Talks, we discuss the reason behind the ban, its implications and impact on industry.
