Chinese Apps Banned

According to information received from various sources, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology was receiving many complaints of various Chinese Apps. These apps were a brutal attack on Indian Sovereignty, Security and Integrity. China could have misused Indian data with the help of these apps.

Indian intelligence agencies had already prepared and submitted a list of these apps to the government. After this, the government collected information about these apps and investigated it. When they felt that these apps could really lead to a breach in India’s security, they decided to ban them immediately.

Significantly, in India, local apps are now promoted more as compared to Chinese apps. ‘Mitron’ app, created to beat the Chinese short video app TikTok, made a new record in just two months of its launch.

Apart from this, ‘Chingari’ app is also becoming very popular among people. At present, ‘Mitron’ app has been downloaded from the Google Play Store by one crore people on their mobile phones. These apps have become very popular among people after the appeal of boycotting Chinese goods.
