    A further disadvantage for Chinese companies would be if the Indian government decided to forbid Chinese smartphones makers from selling their products for less than Rs. 12,000. Promote homegrown companies like Lava and Micromax, among others, may be the strategy. Samsung and a few other non-Chinese companies have gained some market share in the sub-Rs. 15,000 smartphone segment, which is currently dominated by Chinese smartphone manufacturers.

    The Indian government is also looking towards the Chinese app developers in addition to smartphone manufacturers. The Indian version of PUBG Mobile, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), was recently removed from both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by order of the government. In India, it is no longer possible to download the BGMI mobile game.

    The reason why the mobile game was restricted in the nation has not been disclosed by either the government or the game creator. This follows the Indian government’s 2020 decision to outlaw hundreds of Chinese apps, including TikTok, PUBG Mobile, and others.
