GoI blocks 43 mobile apps including four Alibaba Group apps

43 mobile applications have been blocked by the India government. This is due to their involvement in actions that are detrimental to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order. Among the freshly banned apps, a number of apps are owned by Chinese companies. This includes four owned by China’s retail giant, the Alibaba Group- AliExpress, Alipay Cashier, Alibaba Workbench, CamCard and WeDate. AliExpress which is a China-based online shopping platform that has a huge customer base in India. Since April, Indian and Chinese troops have been locked in an impasse in a number of places in Ladakh.  

China’s People’s Liberation Army had endeavoured to transgress the Line of Actual Control. Between the two countries, it is the de-facto border. So far, the two emerging super powers in the South Asian region have conducted several rounds of military and diplomatic dialogues. Under those dialogues, India has asked for the Chinese troops return to their April positions.
