The court had appointed senior advocate Arvind Datar to examine the implications of the application, and the next hearing in the case will be on April 24.
Citing Madras High Court order on April 3, Government of India today banned TikTok app downloads in India.
Tik Tok, a musical application for creating and sharing short videos has been blocked by Google after a state court's directive prohibited its download.
TikTok app has become a craze in India with more than 54 million monthly active users in the country.
"This marked a year-over-year increase of 70 percent from Q1 2018, when 110 million users installed the hit app for the first time", Sensor Tower stated.
Bytedance also argued that a "very minuscule" proportion of TikTok content was considered inappropriate or obscene by its users. The interim order furthers censorship (albeit in the interest of vulnerable groups), and a future order along the same lines will lead to massive self-censorship and content-cleanup efforts across all major platforms who still wish to count India as their market.
The Madras High Court is scheduled to hear the case on Tuesday, April 16 on the issue of ad-interim orders and pass orders or directions accordingly.
