Meeting of the Council of Ministers decided to ‘immediately ban the use of TikTok in Nepal as social harmony has been created through the use of TikTok as a social network’.

Stating that some service providers have disobeyed the government’s decision, it has requested to implement the instructions and inform the authority immediately.
