The list which is said to have been prepared in April has suggested that the government should block or advise people to stop using these Chinese applications.

This could be the first of the many steps being taken by the government to ensure that people stop using no only Chinese products but also Chinese applications.

According to the reports, the step has been taken to hit China’s economy, which is largely dependent on India. 

In April, India had issued an advisory that video conferencing app Zoom is not a secure application and also barred government officials from using the app. 

Security agencies have also reportedly asked security personnel to refrain from using Chinese apps in view of the “detrimental impact that this could have on data security.
