All Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) fans celebrate as Krafton has officially announced the game’s return to the country. However, mentioning that the game’s return is a three-month trial is important.

Indian government allows the return of BGMI

Recently, the information revealed by Krafton has been corroborated by the minister of skill development, electronics, and technology, Rajeev Chandrashekhar, via his Twitter account.

According to the information published by Minister Chandrashekhar, BGMI returns in the form of a trial, and the authorization is for three months. However, it is important to note that this trial does not imply that the gambling restriction will be completely withdrawn.

The Indian government will conduct a lengthy investigation before lifting the gambling ban and making a final decision. This study is intended to observe the possible damages and addiction it may generate in the users.

A three-month trial of BGMI by the Indian government

The Government of India has decided to conduct a three-month trial of the BGMI game to assess what harm it may cause to users closely. After the result of this test, the government will decide whether to lift the restriction on the game or continue to ban its use.

For now, Krafton has not disclosed a re-release date for BGMI; however, the company assures all game fans that they can play it again quickly. It is expected that within a few days, both iOS and Android users will be able to download the game very soon.

It is important to note that no other mobile game has matched the impact this Battle Royale has had on the market. So the entire esports industry eagerly awaits the game’s arrival; they hope the results will be favorable and the game can return for good.

As revealed by Krafton, the company emphasizes a strategy where the Indian market comes first. The company aims to invest in this market and thus grow the competitive scene. On the other hand, Krafton desires to be part of the region’s technological development.

On the other hand, it is important to note that the Indian government restricted BGMI in 2022 based on a law prohibiting using Chinese applications to maintain national security.

But without a doubt, the Indian government allowing BGMI to return to the country, even on a trial basis, is a great achievement for Indian esports. However, we must wait to know when the game will be relaunched and the trial’s verdict three months later.
