Digital strike: Centre bans 54 Chinese apps over security concerns

The Indian government has banned 54 more Chinese apps due to security concerns as border tensions continue. While the government is yet to publish the full list of 54 apps officially, news agency ANI has confirmed the names of 11 Chinese apps out of 54.
