According to a local technology blog Igyaan, DNA and PTI (India) says the leading mobile OS, Android, may get banned in the country.

Many of the those android phones are reportedly hosting many adult applications that are considered unsuitable for viewing of children.

As with the rising number of adult content available on those devices Telecom Minister, Kapil Sabil, has said:

“I want you people to suggest how can we close it. If we want to close it, you will attack us. I want all the media to come together and tell the minister how to deal with it so that if I do something about it, you don’t attack me,”

Google spokesperson responded when contacted, “Google Play developer programme policy does not allow content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. Google has a zero-tolerance policy against child pornography.”

In addition, if the Company has seen inappropriate contents, the Google accounts of involved will be taken down and will also be handed to authorities.

“Similarly for Android, we offer content filtering. Google Play requires developers to label their applications according to the Google Play ratings system, which consists of four levels,”
