The government might look into the existing ties between Krafton and Tencent Games, before green-signalling Battlegrounds Mobile India

Battleground Mobile India’s launch is expected to be sometime in June. Krafton has yet to reveal anything about the launch details. In a recent report, it has been suggested that the game is all set to launch in India on June 18th, 2021.

Battlegrounds Mobile under government check

While Krafton has rebranded the Battle Royal in India, the government seems to have a recurring interest in the case. In the latest development, Lok Sabha MP from Nizamabad, Telangana—Arvind Dharampuri—has written to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad complaining about the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India in the country.

The MP in point here, had sent the letter to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on June 2nd, 2021. The letter claimed that Dharmapuri has received some representation against the upcoming Battleground Mobile India. According to him, social activist Sai Kumar has some serious allegations against the online game.

What is important to note is that the letter didn’t demand any ban on the game. It has only mentioned the issues which are brought to Dharmapuri. It appears that these issues need some attention from the government.

Legal issues with Battlegrounds Mobile India

In his representation against the upcoming battle royal game, Kumar suggests that Krafton has confirmed that the game will be stored in India and Singapore servers. It also allows for international data transfer.

Kumar pointed out that the laws of South Korea will govern the Terms of Services of the game. Dharampuri in his letter also seeks a closer look by the government at the investment and agreements of Krafton with Tencent.

Rumours for the government to ban Battleground Mobile India have started cropping up on the internet since last month. In May, Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering also wrote to the ministry seeking a ban on the relaunch of the game.
