Well, the wait is finally over, BGMI is finally coming back to India after a long period of nine months.

The time is finally here for the Indian gaming community to cherish, as the return of Battlegrounds Mobile India is official. Krafton, the South Korean gaming company, has officially announced the return of BGMI through an official Instagram post. The game was removed from the Indian Play Store and App Store in July 2022, following the directive of the Indian government.

Over the past few weeks, strong rumors of the game's return have hovered around in the community. A media report suggested that MEITY is about to issue an order to unblock BGMI in the country for 90 days. It was reported that the Indian government would closely monitor the game for 90 days to ensure that it was following all rules and regulations. The rumors of BGMI's return have been turned into reality as Krafton has made it official.
