According to reports, India had banned the companies in June last year, after which they were given an opportunity to present their views, but the companies did not cooperate in terms of security and privacy policy.

The banned applications include Bite Dance, TikTok, T-Cent Holding, VChat, Alibaba UC Browser and others. The notification said that the decision to impose a future ban was taken after consultation with security experts.
