PUBG Mobile is banned in India since September 2020. Although, the parent company has tried a lot in the process to uplift the ban, but, the government stands still on the same.

As per the official statement of the government, any interference of Chinese entities in India will never be tolerated. Therefore, the officials at the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology have no plan to unban the game in India.
