There is no doubt that PUBG Mobile is one of the most popular mobile games. In one year, the game has not only become a global phenomenon, but has also managed to organize some of the largest gaming tournaments.
As it is easily available for Android and iOS and it is free of cost, it has become an addiction of many people belongs to different age groups.
Now National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has decided to take a action against PUBG game. It is supporting the petition already made to ban PlayerUnknown's Battleground Mobile. The Child Rights Committee is seeking an action report from the Indian Electronics and Information Technology Department.
Anti Corruption and Consumer Rights Activist Vijay Gopal wrote about the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) and the Electronics and Information Technology Ministry in January 2019 about the ban of the layerUnknown's Battleground Mobile. Child Rights took Action to BAN PUBG When a Class 9 student from Hyderabad was given a medication by a psychiatrist as he was PUBG addict.
Vijay Gopal was quoted as saying, “My worry is about teenagers and young children. We would like to avoid any deaths here on and it's all the more important that we and our government take steps proactively.” Activist believes that with the increased access of the Internet and mobile phones, more children are getting access to games in the more or less supervision of parents.
Child psychologists say that most parents are unaware that their children are addicted to PUBG and other sports. They say that parents bring their children for counseling mostly for poor academic performance.
During the ban, we heard many cases in various cities, where the police arrested near to 20 people playing this game. In particular, people have been arrested for violating the direct state order but have been released immediately on bail.
