PUBG, also known as Players Unknown Battle Ground, is an online multiplayer game. It involves knocking down opponents using different guns and triumphing the game by being the last fellow standing. If you get victorious in this game, in the end, you will receive a message called ‘Winner Winner!! Chicken Dinner!!’ Although some might say that getting these conquests will increase the standard of players. But, the evident outcomes are spine-chilling.

Around 30 million people play this violent and aggressive game. Further, the PUBG game led to many mental health problems in children and adults. They include stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness, introversion, aggression, etc. It was an unsolvable problem for the parents as children were hooked up to it all day. They disobeyed their parents and reacted violently. Due to these factors, the Indian Government decided to ban PUBG once and for all. But there is a twist in this story.

Although the Indian Government banned PUBG game with other Chinese apps, Teenagers have found a path to download its pirated versions. The National Commission of Protection of Child Rights asked the Electronics and Information Technology Ministry about the same. Moreover, the NCPCR has given the IT Ministry ten days to explain the availability of PUBG across the country.

The Commission has raised suspicion in the light of the incident in which a 16-year-old teen from Lucknow shot his mother after she prevented him from playing the game. Many such events have come to light in the past few days. The NCPR has also written to the Indian Olympic associations requesting them to explain the status of PUBG and other games in the country.
