AliExpress and 42 other Chinese apps banned in India
Indian authorities decided to block 43 Chinese apps in the country. This was announced by the Ministry of electronics and information technology.

"The Ministry of electronics and information technology of the government of India today issued a decree in accordance with section 69A of the information technology Act, blocking access to 43 mobile applications. This action was taken after receiving information regarding these applications that they may be used to conduct activities that harm the sovereignty and integrity of India, state security and public order," the Ministry said in a statement.

According to reports, the order to block software solutions was issued on the basis of "exhaustive reports" provided to officials by specialists from the Indian cybercrime coordination center under the Ministry of internal Affairs. The source notes that many of the apps included in the block list are still available for download from the Play Store digital content store, but this will change in the near future.

The tense situation that has developed in relations between India and China has repeatedly caused mobile applications to be blocked in the country. In June of this year, the government of India blocked 59 software products of Chinese origin, and in September, 118 more mobile applications from China were banned. It is worth noting that in the long list of banned SOFTWARE in India, there are well-known names such as TikTok, PUBG Mobile and UC Browser.
