Impact of the ban

Some apps on the banned list are very popular in India, especially TikTok, which has over 100 million active users in the country. New social media platforms like Helo and Likee, Bigo Live are popular among Indians. These users will have to look for substitutes like ShareChat and other alternatives.

Also, most of these platforms have Indian creators, for many of whom this is the only source of income. Many of these apps have offices and employees in India, and a few thousand jobs could be at stake.

Analysts said such steps are now increasingly in the realm of expectations. “India will have to take policy decisions of this kind. This is the first in what is likely to be a series of such decisions. It cannot be business as usual,"

Brainguru Team is supporting this dicision of Govt and waiting for some more actions from Govt against the Data Privacy Issue of Indians.
