BGMI Ban: Fake date surfaces on internet regarding unban, Indian government yet to uplift ban

Published on:

After the Indian government outlawed the game, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) was taken down from the Google Play and Apple App Stores in India, more than a month ago. The game has been prohibited by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) owing to a possible privacy violation. While this greatly devastated BGMI fans, a few rumors have lately circulated online predicting the game’s reappearance.

The internet has been flooded with fake graphics advertising the BGMI unban date, although Krafton has not yet issued an official statement. As per a report by Sportskeeda, the deceptive image appeared to indicate that the well-known game would be returning to the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store on August 22. For Indian players, it is still not available.

The graphic further states that on the specified date, BGMI would be made accessible to iOS players at roughly 4:00 PM IST and to Android users between 12:30 PM and 7:30 PM IST. But it ended up turning out to be false. Fans are hopeful that BGMI will be unbanned as a result of a remark made by the co-founder of Stalwart Esports.

On his Instagram account, Towqeer Gilkar of Stalwart Esports recently shared a story outlining the chances that the game will be unbanned. The game could make a reappearance earlier than everyone anticipates, he said during a live session that he also held. He made suggestions that BGMI might return within a month.

He also mentioned that the relevant authorities had called a meeting, and he and other prominent figures had attended. The beloved title will return soon, he continued, because everyone is working hard to bring BGMI back.

BGMI was one of the most played Battle Royale (BR) games in India. Under the Section 69(A) of the IT Act, the government recently outlawed it. The authorities gave Krafton Inc., the company that made BGMI, 14 days to demonstrate their innocence. The creators are currently gathering proof to dispel concerns about data privacy and connections to China.
