India is continuing to chip away at China’s digital footprint in India. After banning 59 Chinese apps last month citing data privacy concerns, India last week banned another 47 apps, some of which were ‘lite’ versions, said to be functioning as clones of the already banned apps. Now, reportedly the government has ordered blocking of Baidu Search and Weibo, long dubbed as China’s indigenous alternatives to Google and Twitter respectively.
