The Chinese app owned by the ‘Bytedance Technology’ which had moved to the apex court after the Madras High Court on April 3 directed the ban on the “Tik Tok’ app against the social users for posting pornographic and malicious content in their profile.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeiTY) has gone down with the SC order after it stayed the ban order passed by the Madras HC.
Meanwhile on April 15, advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi appearing for Chinese company ‘Bytedance Technology’ had contend for a stay on the ban for the mounting losses on the company.
