The govt blocked 59 Chinese Smartphone applications, including top social media sites like TikTok, Helo, and WeChat, to combat the danger posed by these applications to the “sovereignty and stability” of the country, it said in a press release late Monday. ShareIT, UC client, and shopping app Clubfactory are among other popular applications that were blocked two weeks ago in the wake of increasing tensions between India and China after border clashes.

The government said the applications are engaged in practices “prejudicial to India’s sovereignty and independence, protection of India, state security and public order.” The ban was enforced under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act read with the related provisions of the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Blocking Access to Information by Public) Regulations 2009, it said The government also cited concerns of Indian consumers moving data abroad without authorization.

A top official said both things had been weighed by the government before the decision was made. The Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) statement said that it had received complaints from different outlets, including multiple claims about the exploitation of certain Smartphone applications to intercept and surreptitiously transfer user data to servers outside India.

Recently it was noted that these issues are also a threat to ou’s sovereignty and stability. The Coordination Centre for Indian Cyber Crime, part of the Ministry of Home Affairs, has submitted an “exhaustive suggestion to block harmful software,” said the press release.

Analysts said the move would affect apps in China.“It is sound from a legal viewpoint, as grounds such as national security are difficult to contest in a court of law,” said Santosh Pai, Link Legal’s partner, who monitors Chinese investment in the region.

Conclusion:

The change could come as a shock to China’s plans on the Virtual Silk Road, eroding corporate value. It could also lead to more countries taking the cue from India and intervening against these applications, as per sources.
