Original Story: Amidst the ongoing speculations about the possibility of the popular multiplayer battle royale game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) back on the scene, the ban on the game might finally be lifted.

Following multiple allegations of user data breaches and crimes related to the addictive nature of the game, BGMI was banned by the Indian government back in July 2022. There were many attempts to bring back the game until now, however, various sources revealed that the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) reconsidered its position and will soon issue an order to unblock the app from app stores.

However, the upliftment of the ban on BGMI doesn’t come easy, as concerned authorities will keep an eye on the game. Strict policies like time limits for gaming hours, changing the in-game blood color to a default one, and adhering to the server data security will be implemented. Needless to say, failing to meet any of these guidelines will again result in the removal of the game from the Indian market.

The majority of the Indian gaming audience is hooked on this mass-appealing battle royale title, and the chances of it returning are big news for the gaming community. This will surely stir up the esports scene in the country owing to the market prominence of this game. Meanwhile, higher authorities will closely analyze and monitor the game in this 3-month period, so it is crucial for the developers of BGMI to follow these rules.
