Battleground Mobile India (BGMI), one of the most awaited games of 2021, is reportedly sending data to China. While the game is yet to be launched in the country, the game is currently available via an Early Access Program and has already recorded over 5 millions downloads.
Although that was enough for the game developers to get a green Signal from the Indian Government, a recent report suggests that data is being sent and received to servers in China, Hong Kong, US and Moscow. According to a report by IGN India, the data was being sent and received by the Battlegrounds Mobile India APK to servers in several regions, including China. The data was particularly being sent to China Mobile Communications server in Beijing, the Tencent-run Proxima Beta in Hong Kong, as well as Microsoft Azure servers located in Mumbai, Moscow and the US. Furthermore, while booting up the game, it also notifies a Tencent server in Beijing.
As per reports, it has been decided by the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) to bring this to the notice of everyone through a letter to the Union IT and Communication Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad to demand a ban of Battlegrounds Mobile in the country.
