The Information Ministry received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India.

The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures.

Confederation Of All India Traders (CAIT) hailed the ban 118 Chinese apps

"Banning of 118 more Chinese Apps by Union Government today is a major milestone step against misdeeds of China and will certainly boost the morale of the Country," said Praveen Khandelwal, Secretary General of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

Khandelwal said that banning more Chinese Apps other than 59 already banned Chinese apps was all the more necessary as these Apps were always a threat to Country’s safety, security and sovereignty as also for the protection of individual data these apps were accruing through their usages.
