PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or popularly known as PUBG is in trend these days and especially in India, where the battle royale game became extremely popular mobile game in no time. But it seems that the popular battle royale is in trouble, as the Gujarat government banned PUBG for primary school due to the adverse effect on studies.
The state primary education department issued a circular after recommendation by the Gujarat State Commission for Protection of Child Rights. The circular issued by the education department addressed District Primary Education Officers to take necessary steps to tackle the situation as children in primary schools were getting addicted to the PUBG game, which was seen a major reason for the adverse effect on studies.
The situation for the PUBG lovers seems to get worse as National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has recommended a ban on the game across the country, said Jagruti Pandya, chairperson of the Gujarat child rights body, in a statement.
She also said, “The NCPCR had sent a letter to all the states and recommended a ban on the game. All the states are required to implement it. Looking at the negative effects of the game, we had recently sent a letter to the state government recommending a ban on the game.”
For now, the game publisher, Tencent games India has not responded to the PUBG Ban. Stay tuned to get the latest update for the same.
