On Tuesday, the government of Gujarat had issued a circular order to district authorities to ensure a complete ban on online multimedia game PlayersUnkown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).

The primary education department of Gujarat has issued a circular after recommendation by Gujarat State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, reports officials.

The circular ordered District Primary Education Officers to take effective steps to ensure a complete ban on PUBG in all primary schools in the state.

It continued that the ban of PUBG was important as children were getting affected to the online multimedia game and it was affecting their studies adversely.

Therefore, NCPCR (National Commission for Protection of Child Rights) has suggested a ban on the multimedia game across the country, informed Gujarat Child Rights body’s chairperson Jagruti Pandya.

Ms. Pandya said that “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.”
