Government bans AliPay, WeTV, Lalamove India and 40 other ‘Chinese apps’

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has issued an order under section 69A of the Information Technology Act to block access to another 43 smartphone apps of Chinese origin. The new list includes apps like Alipay Cashier, AliExpress, WeWorkChina.
 
In June, 59 apps were banned which included TikTok, UC Browser, WeChat, Bigo Live and other popular apps. Two months later, the government banned 118 more apps including PUBG Mobile, PUBG Mobile Lite, WeChat Work, Baidu, Tencent Weiyun and others taking the total count of Chinese-linked mobile apps banned by India to 224. The latest ban of 43 apps takes the count to 267.
 
The ministry offers a similar reason for the ban. “This action was taken based on the inputs regarding these apps for engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order. The government issued the order for blocking the access of these apps by users in India based on the “comprehensive reports” received from Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Center, Ministry of Home Affairs,” as per an official statement.
