TN VIT puts up notice outside hostel asking students to not play PUBG

2018 was good for games, especially with PUBG. It has emerged as one of the most popular games in India and perhaps that's the reason why it is giving sleepless nights to parents, schools, universities, and the young gamers.

Last week, we had reported how schools in Bengaluru had warned parents against their children getting addicted to the game.

According to a report in News18, the Chief Warden of Men’s Hostel of Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) in Tamil Nadu, has sent out a circular warning the students against playing late night online games, with a special mention to PUBG.

The circular, that has been issued for students staying in the hostel, states that the game disturbs fellow roommates and it is "spoiling the entire atmosphere of the hostel". It even suggests that students must concentrate on physical games or sports and "give more importance to their career growth"

A copy of the notice has been shared on Reddit. As per the report, Dr. S. Sivakumar, the Associate Chief Warden of VIT's Men’s Hostel has confirmed the authenticity of the circular.

The circular became a hot topic of discussion. "If you're living in a hostel, you have to also keep in mind about the roommate who is there to study. You can't play pubg all night like "mah lyf, mah rules" and bark while disturbing others who are paying through their nose to study there," wrote one user.

With PUBG Mobile reaching 100 million downloads in September, it comes as no surprise that the online game is a rage amongst kids and adults alike.
