TikTok ban lifted in India, App now available for download on Apple App Store and Google Play Store

Last week, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court in India passed an ex-parte interim order against TikTok and its parent company ByteDance Technology Pvt Ltd, directing the Indian Government to prohibit the download of TikTok in the country. The same order went on to prohibit the media from telecasting videos made using TikTok. 
The order was due to allegations that the platform was being used to share ponographic, illegal and inappropriate contents among teens. Madras high court has vacated its order to prohibit downloading TikTok. 

The ban has however been lifted after the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court today reversed its earlier ban on the download and use of the popular video-sharing app, TikTok. This reversal means the TikTok app will now be available for download again on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The ban which lasted for just a few days caused ByteDance, which is the Chinese company behind the App losses of up to $500,000 a day and put more than 250 jobs in jeopardy. A senior government official in India has confirmed that both Apple and Google will be asked to allow the TikTok app to return on their respective platforms.
