Is BGMI Banned In India? Know Why It Got Removed

Battlegrounds Mobile India shocked every Indian gamer as the game is now unavailable from PlayStore and Ios Store. However, the reason is still unknown behind the removal and whether BGMI is banned or there is some glitch.

BGMI was released last year in July which was an alternative game launched by Krafton for PUBG Mobile. Earlier, PUBG Mobile was handed a ban by the Indian Government because of privacy reasons for the users.

It’ll be interesting to see, if the alternative game has also been banned in the country or if there is some glitch. Notably, the same happened to another mobile battle royale game called Free Fire. The game was removed from the Playstores and later the ban was confirmed.

Battlegrounds Mobile India was in its full flow recently as the game hosted some mega events that too on LAN. Recently, the game was also aired live on TV Channel Star Sports.

If the game gets banned again, it’ll be tough to make a comeback again as the developers tried everything to meet the criteria. However, the ban is still not confirmed and a glitch from the game side might also be a reason behind it. Not to forget, Free Fire’s removal in a similar manner is concerning the fans.

As of now, users are waiting from the official of the game to give any update on the issue.
