A bench of Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice N M Jamdar directed the secretary of the department concerned of the Union government to direct the service provider of the game to block the same, if it deemed fit.
The court was hearing a public interest litigation seeking children be prohibited from playing 'PUBG' in schools.
Tanveer Nizam, the lawyer arguing the PIL, also urged the court to direct all schools to ban the game on their premises.
Instead, it was imperative that parents of school-going children ensure that their wards do not access such games, it added.
"How can you say schools should ban the game? Schools will say we already don't allow it. If parents are permitting their children to access mobiles and such games then what will the school do?" the bench said.
The PIL had alleged that the game has children and adults addicted and that it promotes violence, aggression and cyber-bullying.
