On 3rd April Madras High Court appealed for a ban of Chinese application TikTok, saying it encourages pornography and effects the child as the application is used by mostly teenagers.
After almost a month long legal battle Madurai High Court lifts the interim ban from Tik Tok India. TikTok nearly has 0.5 billion users and 119 million users from India.
The Chinese video creating application was removed from both the Google and Apple play store and the new users were banned from downloading the application.
