The Government of India banned 59 Chinese apps stating that they engaged in activities that are "prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.” These banned apps have been given 48 hours to clarify on the data-sharing practices and to prove that the data was not being shared to servers in China.

A top-level government panel will be probing the data practices of the banned Chinese apps on July 1, according to a report by The Economic Times.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.
