NEW DELHI (Reuters) – China's ByteDance has decided to downsize its Indian team and is unsure when the company will make a comeback in India, an internal memo to employees said on Wednesday.

India has decided to maintain its ban on the TikTok video app and 58 other Chinese apps after reviewing companies' responses on issues such as compliance and privacy. This was announced to Reuters on Tuesday by two sources with direct knowledge.

The apps were banned due to mounting tensions between India and China following a border dispute between the two nations last year.

"We had initially hoped that this situation would only last a short time … we are finding that it did not," ByteDance wrote in an internal memo to the staff that Reuters saw.

"We just can't responsibly stay full as long as our apps aren't working. We don't know when we'll be making a comeback in India."
