"As per the proceedings in the Supreme Court today, the Madras High Court will hear the matter on ex parte ad interim order. The Supreme Court has listed the matter again for April 22, 2019, to be apprised of the outcome of the hearing on the April 16th, 2019 before the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court. At TikTok, we have faith in the Indian Judicial system and the stipulations afforded to social media platforms by the Information Technology (Intermediaries Guidelines) Rules, 2011," Economic Times quoted the company.

The order form MeitY will prevent the downloads of the Chinese video sharing app TikTok. However, people who already have downloaded the app can continue using it on the smartphones. Basically, the usage is not banned only the download is ban.
