“There is a greater need for a clear set of standards and framework to ensure fairness and uniformity to all stakeholders. The industry wishes to pro-actively engage with the government in forming a robust set of video games-centric policies based on global best practices,” the letter noted.

The letter from the gaming companies comes after the Centre last month ordered Google and Apple to block the BGMI gaming app from their respective online stores under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000.

The game developer Krafton had announced recently that BGMI surpassed 100 million registered users in India.

The gaming companies in the letter requested PM Modi’s urgent intervention in the matter, seeking his “counsel and guidance on working towards a more comprehensive dialogue and discussion in the future”.
