The govt banned 59 Chinese mobile applications, including top social media platforms such as TikTok, Helo, and WeChat, to counter the threat posed by these applications to the country’s sovereignty and security. Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma said on June 30 that the government's ban on 59 Chinese apps was a bold move, which was in the national interest. A top official said the govt had considered all aspects before making the decision. “These apps have been there for a long time, and there are some privacy and security issues with them including risks of data going out of the country.
Paytm, run by One97 Communications, counts China's Alibaba and Ant Financial as major investors. Where China on Tuesday said that India's move to ban 59 Chinese-origin mobile apps could be a breach of World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules, and urged New Delhi to create an open and fair business environment. Chinese embassy according to the report said: "We expect India acknowledges the mutually beneficial nature of China-India economic and trade cooperation, and urge the Indian side to change its discriminatory practices, maintain the momentum of China-India economic and trade cooperation, treat all investments and service providers equally, and create an open, fair and just business environment". By these comments from the Chinese embassy, totally reflects that ban on these applications in India has been a great effect on China after all.
