How can Tencent Unban PUBG Mobile in India?

There has not been any confirmation of which route Tencent Games is taking to address the ban of PUBG Mobile in India. A possible solution may be finding an Indian distributor to publish the game in the country. Yet consider its origin, there's a slim chance that it works. Perhaps, the best scenario is Chinese Officials agree to sit down and negotiate the terms with the Indian Government, for the sake of both nations. All in all, the community needs to stay calm and make the most out of what we have, or maybe switch to other games like Free Fire in the meantime.
