3. PUBG Mobile Ban In Tamil Nadu 

Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) in Tamil Nadu released a ban on the PUBG online game on the campus of the University. The Chief Warden of Men’s Hostel issued a circular indicating that playing online games like PUBG will no longer be entertained anymore in the campus.

It was alleged that students who are not playing the game also get disturbed due to it and lead to spoiling the entire atmosphere of the hostel. It was suggested by University to “give more importance to their career growth.” 

Internet Freedom Foundation (IFF) Filling PIL Against The Ban On PUBG Mobile 

PIL was filed to Gujarat High Court by the Internet Freedom Foundation (IFF) challenging the ban on PUBG mobile. The IFF complained that the PUBG ban leads to a violation of Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Indian Constitution.

But the efforts by an organization that is defending net neutrality, freedom, privacy & innovation in India have gone in vain as the Gujarat High Court has dismissed their PIL.

 

PUBG Mobile developers said,

PUBG mobile introduced “Healthy Gaming System” feature, a six-hour time restriction for users in India. But some users are reporting that this feature had a glitch because few users are unable to play the PUBG even if they stay under the time limit.
