Police in the Rajkot region of India temporarily banned PUBG in the city from March 9th to March 30th, 2019 and could be extended. Other cities in India reportedly also follow similar step.

PUBG is banned among others because it is considered to contain violence and makes children lazy to learn. The police also said that many parents wanted the game to be blocked in that country. Besides PUBG, the police also banned Momo challenge.
