In the Corona era, Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma called the Indian government’s decision to ban 59 Chinese apps as bold. He described this decision as a step taken in the national interest. On Monday evening, the Indian government had announced a ban on 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok, Share-It, CamScanner and Likee. Sharma’s statement is very important as China’s Alibaba and Ant Financial have invested heavily in One97 Communications, which operates Paytm. Alibaba and its affiliated companies hold 25% stake in One97 Communications.
In his statement, Sharma tweeted, Bold steps taken in the national interest. A step towards self-sufficient app ecosystem. The best Indian entrepreneurs have the opportunity to come forward and create the best for Indians by Indians. This is the effect of India’s digital revolution
