TikTok is no longer working in India as most ISPs including Airtel and Vodafone seem to have blocked the use of the app.
Some TikTok users based in India have posted screenshots of the inability to use the app on Twitter.
Upon opening TikTok, one now sees a "no internet connection" message, which means that ISPs have begun to block access to this short video sharing platform.
On Monday, the Indian government on Monday banned TikTok and 58 other 59 Chinese apps that will be banned in India because they are prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, the security of the state and public order.
These apps include TikTok, ShareIt, UC Browser, Helo, Likee, Xender, CamScanner and a host of others developed from Chinese vendors.
Many of these apps have a large number of users, are highly influential and there are many creative writers in India who rely on these platforms to publish their content and generate revenue.
At the time of the Ministry of Information Technology's announcement yesterday, it wasn't clear how the government would enforce the ban, but it's now clear that telecom operators will block the use of these apps.
In the meantime, some Chinese apps have been pulled from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store in India, meaning that if you download them on your phone in India, they will soon be unavailable.
