 Indias ban on 43 apps, mostly from Chinas Ali shot


Indias Ministry of electronics and information technology has issued an order banning access to 43 mobile applications, the Indian information agency said. Most of the 43 apps come from China. It is reported that the move was taken because these mobile applications engage in activities detrimental to Indias sovereignty and integrity, Indias national defense, national security and public order.

It is worth noting that India has banned many apps from China for many times. According to incomplete statistics, the total number of apps banned by Chinese companies in India exceeds 200.

India re ban Chinese app

Since this year, India has banned many Chinese apps.

On June 29, the Indian government announced that India banned 59 Chinese apps, including tiktok and wechat, for security reasons, believing that the activities of these apps would damage Indias sovereignty, national defense, national security and public order.

A month later, India again announced that 47 Chinese apps were banned.

On September 2, the Indian government announced through the Ministry of electronics and information technology of India that 118 apps of Chinese companies suspected of being involved in activities endangering Indias sovereignty and (territorial) integrity, Indias national defense, national security and public order were banned, including search engine Baidu, e-commerce service platform mobile Taobao, online video app Youku, Sina News, wechat reading and Jedi Survival mobile games and other popular applications.

Chinas voice firmly opposes

While India frequently banned Chinas app, China has repeatedly expressed its opposition.

Gaofeng said that India abused the concept of national security and took discriminatory restrictive measures against Chinese enterprises, in violation of relevant WTO rules. The Chinese government has always demanded that Chinese enterprises in overseas countries abide by international rules and operate in accordance with the law. Indias relevant practices not only damage the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese investors and service providers, but also harm the interests of Indian consumers and the investment environment of India as an open economy.

Summit stressed that China urges India to correct its mistakes. China India Economic and trade cooperation is mutually beneficial and win-win. It is hoped that India and China will jointly safeguard the hard won cooperation and development situation and create an open, fair and just business environment for international investors and service providers including Chinese enterprises.

From the beginning to the end, the reason why the Indian government announced to ban Chinese app was that it affected Indias national security. However, using the so-called security as a pretext to ban it will actually have an adverse impact on India itself.

The Indian Express has said that this may deprive Indians of their sources of income and jobs working on these platforms. Indias New Delhi television also said the ban would cast a shadow over celebrity accounts and government agency numbers, such as those on tiktok.

Indias import surge to China

China has always been Indias largest trading partner and source of imports. Official data show that in 2019, the bilateral trade volume between China and India will reach 639.52 billion yuan, of which India has imported 515.63 billion yuan of goods to China, accounting for two thirds of the total trade volume of the two countries.

Indias prime minister, Modi, put forward the slogan of self-reliance in May, widely seen as an attempt to reduce Indias dependence on China. The first ban on Chinese app also happened after the slogan was put forward. However, the data show that Indias import to China has increased rather than decreased this year.

According to the latest official data, the proportion of Chinese goods in Indias overall import volume has reached a peak again, rising from 13.7% in the previous fiscal year to 18.3% in the six months before September, a sharp rise of 4.5%, according to the South China Morning Post reported by global.com on November 23. It remains Indias largest trading partner and source of imports. Self reliance has not changed this fact. Analysis shows that the main reason for China is the nature of Indias imports. Indias imports are not mostly finished products. Raw materials and accessories also need to be imported from abroad, and China is the main source of such imports.

Sameer thadani, 31, is the owner of a luxury bag company. He said his companys luxury bags need accessories such as locks, chains and buckles from China. If they are replaced by Indian ones, he is worried that customers will lose. In a short period of time, the one size fits all self-sufficiency has brought losses to such enterprises.

According to the report, in some industries, in a short period of time, Chinas supply disruption or interruption is more due to the impact of the epidemic rather than policy. From the perspective of market economy, businessmen are more inclined to import materials and accessories from China, which was and is still the case in the past. For Indian Importers, self-sufficiency is no longer a new concept, but there are no positive signs to change the current economic ecology of India. Some people think that the government should not only shout slogans, but also provide corresponding convenience and incentive policies for the development of domestic enterprises. In fact, the Indian government is also aware that the countrys economic recovery can not be separated from China. India is considering relaxing restrictions on foreign direct investment, including China, in some areas, allowing investment with a foreign investment ratio of less than 26% without local approval, officials said.
