Banning chinese entertainment apps is good.

Banning ecommerce apps is also good.

But most critical is banning China backed travel apps.

Travel apps get nationwide travel trends, personal info of travellers (army, civillians, source, destination etc). This puts national security in the times of possible war scenario at great risk.

 

Imagine-

1. A lieutenant travelling to Jammu from Delhi, books flight ticket from MakeMyTrip (Chinese funded)

2. A jawan booking bus ticket from RedBus or PayTM (both severly chinese funded)

3. Or books train ticket from GoIBIBIO 

 Over the years, Chinese government and firms have increased their stakes in these large travel companies to majority ownership. What is more suspeecious is the data usage policy of these firms.  You might see dynamic advertisements on Facebook from these companies, giving you lucrative offers and also showing your travel destination (Based on your search history).

Make my trip has majority stake picked ul by China's Ctrip(47% stake)  In mid 2019, the same time when it was strategizing a potential war against India.  This was potentially one of the biggest Chinese investments in India but the company kept it under the wrapper and didnt advertise it much.

Basically China's strategic investments are more focused on critical data capturing than profit making(MMT-RedBus reported USD400 million loss for FY'20 due to heavy advertisement spends as they hired Dhoni and Ranveer Singh as key faces for MMT and RedBus).

 

Lets decide if we are ready to keep national travel data and safety at risk?
