disobeying the imposed ban, and are motivating others to do the same same thing as well, due to which they can be prosecuted and penalized
On September 2, the Indian authorities banned PUBG Mobile under Section 69A of the IT Act. It mentioned that the game has been participating in activities prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity, defense, and data security of India.

Since then many individuals have been waiting for PUBG Mobile to make a comeback, which doesn't seem far away. However many have been breaking the regulation and playing the Korean version of PUBG Mobile or global versions of the game, utilizing a VPN service.

Although a lot of them won't be caught, as a VPN service hides your IP and masks the incoming data packets with an encryption layer. However, many online streamers(On YouTube, Facebook) tournament organizers and esports organizations can face penalties as they've been putting out content for the banned game PUBG Mobile.

Adeeb Sayeed a blogger just lately sent out letters of warnings to such content creators making an attempt to warn them of the consequences they may face from the authorities for a similar. To which, the creators asked for a “text from the federal government, explicitly saying that the PUBG Mobile KR version of the game is banned.” They mentioned that the government has solely banned the PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: LIVIK and PUBG Mobile Lite versions within the nation.

What they don't seem to understand is that PUBG Mobile Korean(KR) has cross-play functionality, which signifies that it accesses the PUBG Mobile Global server, which is blocked by the Indian government. And utilizing a VPN service to access any such content is towards the law.

Attributable to this, an RTI was filed by Prasoon Shekhar, a law student inquiring in regards to the ‘provision of law if anyone disobeys the ban imposed on Chinese apps’.

To this MeitY replied by stating “MeitY doesn't ban any App.  However, blocking of specified Apps was done under the provisions of Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000 and its Rules namely IT (Process and Safeguards for Blocking Entry of Info by the Public) Rules, 2009. Section 69A of the Act gives for a penalty to intermediaries for non-compliance with the blocking order. Nonetheless, no penalty is prescribed for a particular person of such Apps.”

The reply merely signifies that if a person is accessing the application in a non-public environment they won't be prosecuted but are still disobeying the imposed ban.

Whereas, folks and groups who're publicizing the content are disobeying the imposed ban, and are motivating others to do the same thing as well, due to which they can be prosecuted and penalized for streaming PUBG Mobile KR.
