In a latest round of ban, the govt has banned 43 more Chinese apps including Snack Video and AliExpress along with AliPay Cashier.

Earlier in June, the Government of India had blocked access to 59 mobile apps and in September, 118 more apps were banned under section 69A of the Information Technology Act. The government has cited "sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order" as reasons for the ban.

Other names include AliSuppliers and Alibaba Workbench, CamCard -- Business Card Reader, Chinese Social, WeDate, TrulyChinese etc.

"This action was taken based on the inputs regarding these apps for engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order. Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has issued the order for blocking the access of these apps by users in India based on the comprehensive reports received from Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Center, Ministry of Home Affairs," the ministry of electronics and IT said in a statement on Tuesday.
This comes even as apps which were blocked in the first round are waiting for a clarification from the government on their future course of action after they submitted detailed responses to government questionnaires. The government had banned apps such as ByteDance-owned TikTok and Helo along with WeChat, CamScanner and PUBG in multiple rounds so far.

"Government is committed to protect the interests of citizens and sovereignty and integrity of India on all fronts and it shall take all possible steps to ensure that," the government said in the statement.
