These banned clones include Tiktok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite, BIGO LIVE Lite and VFY Lite
Current Affairs : The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) has prohibited 47 applications, which were variations and cloned duplicates of the 59 applications restricted before in June.
These prohibited clones incorporate Tiktok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite, BIGO LIVE Lite and VFY Lite.
The request in regards to restriction on these applications went ahead Friday, July 24.
The 59 applications, the vast majority of which were Chinese, had been restricted by the Center in June taking into account the data accessible that they are occupied with exercises which are “biased to power and respectability and protection” of the nation.
Practically all the applications prohibited had some particular Chinese intrigue and the lion’s share have parent Chinese organizations.
The boycott came in the midst of fringe pressures with China in Eastern Ladakh.
