      The app was remove from the Google Play store for having a link to the Aarogya Setu contact tracing app.

      MobiKwik has been remove from the Google Play store, because of a violation of the app store’s ads policy.

      According to MobiKwik co-founder and CEO Bipin Preet Singh, this done because the app has a link to the Aarogya Setu app.

      Singh said in an interview that MobiKwik receive a warning from Google a week ago for promoting Aarogya Setu, but then it said mistake when contact by MobiKwik.

      The App was Remove from Google Play.

      Bipin Preet Singh tweeted :

      MobiKwik and other fintech firms were ask to include the link to Aarogya Setu by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) as part of a very enthusiastic push to drive installs of the contact tracing app, which has been downloaded more than 10 crore times.

      You can see that other apps such as Paytm also include links to Aarogya Setu, on both Android and iOS apps.

      Bipin Preet Singh Said :

      “App remove because we had a link to Aarogya Setu app,”

      “They gave us a warning one week ago and we explaine that we have been ask to do this.

      Then today they first removed it around 3pm IST and then we pursued their team and resubmitted the app after removing the link to Aarogya Setu and now they made it live.”

      “Google clarified that there is no harm in promoting Aarogya Setu app on MobiKwik,

      So they removed our app today from the Play Store without any intimation,”. 

      A fresh version of the app is now available on Google Play.

      Bipin Preet Singh Said :

      “The entire experience is arbitrary and has no logic because so many other apps have the same link,”

      Google does have policies against apps that contain deceptive or disruptive ads and those which aren’t clearly labelled.
