ByteDance sets up office in Mumbai despite India’s TikTok ban

ByteDance, the owner of TikTok that was recently banned in India, has reportedly gone ahead with plans to establish an office in Mumbai. The Chinese company has signed a deal with WeWork, which provides shared workspaces, for 1,250 seats, the news agency reported.

TikTok’s parent company ByteDance might be having issues in India, yet it is, in any case, squeezing ahead with plans to build up an office in Mumbai to accommodate 1,250, according to media reports.

The Economic Times reported, referring to sources acquainted with the arrangement, that ByteDance, the Beijing-headquartered organization, has hit an arrangement with WeWork, which gives shared workspaces, to offer impact on the arrangement.

The announced arrangement comes scarcely weeks after the Indian government prohibited TikTok and 58 other Chinese applications referring to information security and national security worries with regards to the wicked clash among Chinese and Indian soldiers along the Line of Actual Control.

The boycott has affected TikTok’s growth prospects in India, which is apparently perhaps the greatest market. However, the announced office-space move recommends that ByteDance is as yet looking for more profound infiltration into the Indian market.
