As soon as it was launched on Battlegrounds Mobile India, questions have been raised. The game has come under fire ever since its early access went live a few days ago. It was reported that it is sending and receiving data from servers in China, Hong Kong, Moscow and the US. It was also reported that it pinged a Tencent server in Beijing while booting. Krafton last year announced the termination of ties with China-based Tencent to bring the game back to its former form for Indian users. After that, now these new reports are telling that the company is not keeping that promise. Now Krafton has released a small update to fix the China server issue.

IGN India was the first to report about Battlegrounds Mobile India hosting data on servers in China and other countries. now it says That the game will not share information with China servers when you play the game. A small automatic update downloaded when you boot up the game seems to have fixed the problem. Once that update is applied Battlegrounds Mobile India will ask you to restart the game and log back in.

This update released by Crafton reportedly blocks any data from going to Chinese servers. IGN India ran a packet sniffer over the course of two matches after the update was implemented and noticed that Battlegrounds Mobile India was not reporting a single Chinese server. The report states that Chinese servers are pinged only when the app data is deleted. This could be due to the account migration feature, which enabled PUBG Mobile users to move their in-app purchases to Battlegrounds Mobile India.

Use Battlegrounds Mobile India in its Privacy Policy say that personal information will be stored on servers located in India and Singapore and then processed. However, it may transfer user data to other countries in order to operate the game service or to satisfy legal requirements. This new update will reportedly ensure that no Chinese servers are pinged for Indian users.

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has written to Union IT and Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, demanding a ban on Battlegrounds Mobile India in the country. It has also urged Google to remove the game from its Play Store.
