Government Bans 47 More Chinese Apps in India | The government has banned 47 Chinese apps in India. By the end of June, 59 Chinese apps were banned by the government for “protecting national interests and security” – including the extremely popular Tiktok app.
The government previously banned CamScanner, SHAREit, and others including UC Browser. That restriction was announced under the provisions of Section 69A of the Information Technology Act.

While there is no word on the inclusion of all Chinese apps in the list, titles such as Tiktok Lite, Halo Light, Shareite Light, Bigo Light and VFY Lite have been included.
