Read the story “Time's up: TikTok to shut operations in India after permanent ban”, where our Partner and Head - China Desk, Santosh Pai shared his expert views with Business Standard.

"When the ban came into force, internet companies were an easy target for the Indian government. If the border situation had been resol­ved in one or two months, the Indian government could have allowed TikTok and other Chinese apps to continue operations, with a few safeguards, but in the past six months, there has been no improvement in the border situation. TikTok has a global and an Indian problem. That TikTok is Chinese owned has been a problem in many countries. Eventually, to get around this issue they might sell to a US company. This might be a permanent global solution. India may then choose to review the situation. If they do not change ownership, I don’t think India will be open for TikTok."

Our Partner and Head - China Desk, Santosh Pai shared his expert views with The Economic Times in the story "Chinese apps weighing legal recourse against India ban".

"It was advisable to not challenge the government’s action during the early days as it seemed to be prompted on national security grounds and was temporary with the government giving (the banned apps) a chance to make representations. Now, that incentive to wait or to have further discussions with the government is not there anymore."
