Last month, the Centre had banned around 59 Chinese applications, including popular ones such as TikTok, based on information that these were engaged in activities prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity, defence, security and public order. The move was seen as a retaliatory step against clashes between Indian and Chinese troops at the border, which had led to 20 Indian Army personnel being killed on Jun 15.
