<p>The Competition Commission of India (CCI), which issued the order, said that the informants are principally upset about Google’s revised payment practices regarding its in-house app store, Google Play Store, which is seen to be in breach of competition legislation.</p>
<p>Additionally, the order was issued less than two weeks after Google deleted a few applications due to payment difficulties from the Play Store. Due to a disagreement about service fee payments, Google banned a few applications from the Play Store in India on March 1. After receiving criticism from the government, the apps were ultimately reinstalled. The payment regulations are said to have an effect on a number of parties, including users, payment processors, and app developers.</p>
<p>After concluding on the basis of prima facie that Google had violated Section 4 of the Competition Act, which deals with abuse of dominant position, the watchdog ordered the investigation.</p>
<p>Google has alleged that the service fee has been levied for a variety of services that Play Store offers to app developers, according to the regulator’s 21-page judgment.</p>
