Battlegrounds has received some criticism by the government for its involvement with the Chinese company Tencent. The government has made an official request to review the data practices of the company but there has been no official communication or a response from the company in that aspect so far.
It is also important to note that both PUBG mobile India and PUBG mobile Lite have been banned in India since the September of 2020 for data privacy issues under section 69A in the Information Technology Act.
