TikTok confirms closure of Indian operations.

About 40 people are expected to be affected by the closure of the remote sales center, and the company plans to pay nine months’ worth of severance pay to them.

In June 2020, India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) banned TikTok, along with 58 other China-linked apps.

TikTok is one of the most popular social media apps in India, especially among Gen Z users.
