Why BGMI Players Are Facing "Server Not Online Yet Error"?
Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), India’s favorite mobile shooter title, had remained unavailable on the Play Store and the App Store in India for almost 10 months. Yet, that did not stop dedicated players from the community to log into the game and play as the servers were still online. However, recent developments have revealed that players are now unable to access the game as it prompts an “Server Error” message upon logging in. The game has seemingly undergone a server maintenance phase as Krafton resumes its plan to relaunch the game in India while adhering to the data security and user welfare laws.

However, bringing down the curtains on all the speculations, Krafton, after a long haul, finally released a statement regarding the unban of BGMI in India.
