It must be noted that Inside Sport was first news platform who informed that PUBG relaunch reports or attempts have not been approved by the Ministry and no permission has been granted to anyone.

PUBG Officials have continuously chased the MEITY officials for around 30 days and the government is yet to provide a hearing. And the major information coming in from both the sides is that the ban on the game is not getting revoked for a few more months. Sources on the side of PUBG informed that the matter is not getting resolved so soon.

An official who is closely following the developments from the side of PUBG said that efforts from PUBG were made in the right earnest but situation is such that there has been not much progress in the matter. They don’t see the game coming back to India for a few more months and surely not before March 2021. Everyone must live with it. After this statement, it is clear that PUBG Mobile is not coming back to India so soon.
