According to one official in the government, PUBG Mobile India had tried to create a base for a mega-launch around the year-end but such is the situation that it will not be possible before March 2021. PUBG Mobile Corporation has been trying to have a meeting with MEITY (Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology) for the last four weeks but there has been absolutely no progress on the matter. However, the meeting might not even be granted due to the government protocols regarding this matter.
The government has collectively banned the Chinese app operations in the country. According to the stated policy, the Government will not treat anyone differently or give special favours and meeting a banned entity individually goes against the norms of the administration. This has a clear message: PUBG Mobile India will NOT get any special status. The second and main reason is that there is still a lot of anti-China sentiment in the country. The Galwan Valley tensions have still not simmered. When all the 118 apps, including PUBG Mobile India were banned, the main reason given was that these apps compromise national security. When that factor is weighed, it seems very unlikely that PUBG Mobile India will get a special preference.
