PlayerUnknown’s Battleground commonly called as PUBG has took the gaming industry by storm not only because of its addictive nature of gameplay but also because many incidents have been reported in the recent past where in gamers have injured themselves such as a fitness trainer from Jammu who harmed himself only because of losing in the game.

Many state governments are taking preventive measure to ban the game, and we reportedly believe Surat district administration is first to have banned the game largely because of the increase in violent behaviour among the children and the youth at an alarming rate.

Students showed poor performance in studies as they were addicted to the game. The ban on the PUBG mobile game will come into effect starting March 9, the administration said.

According to other media reports, a circular letter to ban the PUBG mobile game were sent to a number of primary education officers of the district to collectively make an effort to reduce the number of incidents arising from the game addiction.

Jagruti Pandya, Chairperson of Gujarat Child rights body, has sent a circular to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) of all states to help curb the negative effects of the game.
