The initial reason for the BGMI ban
After the game’s ban, audiences and players were agitated and were wanting for the game’s return. However, the Indian Government banned the game under section 69A of the IT Act 2000. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity) took an issue related to servers located in China, stealing data from its users. The safety, security and privacy of the users were among the top concerns of the government, which led to the suspension of the game.
