- According to it, players under 18 years need to get consent from their parents to play the game.

Battlegrounds Mobile India rules for players under 18 years of age
Mobile number requirement
Krafton hasn’t given any specific details on how would it verify the parental consent. The game developer might most probably send a text message to the parents’ mobile asking them for permission to allow their kids to play the game. The SMS could have an OTP, which the player might have to enter in the game to play Battlegrounds Mobile India. That is just speculation though.
It is worth mentioning that if Krafton opts for this method, it will be very easy for players to fool the game developer. As the majority of the youth in India that is under 18 years have a mobile of their own, they can just enter their mobile number instead of their parent’s mobile number and get into Battleground Mobile India. It is also possible that Krafton might set up a call center where it can call parents and ask for consent but this method seems too far-fetched.
Limit on in-app purchases
You might also know that games like these have an option for in-app purchases. Interestingly, the game developer states that players under 18 years of age can’t spend more than Rs 7,000 a day for in-app purchases in Battlegrounds Mobile India. But then again, we doubt most kids in India would even spend a single penny for in-app purchases.
