NCLAT upholds Rs 1,338-crore penalty imposed on Google by CCI🧐
In a major setback for Google, a two-member bench of the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) has upheld the fine of Rs 1,338 crore imposed on the search giant by the Competition Commission of India (CCI), saying the competition watchdog’s order did not violate the principles of natural justice.
The NCLAT bench has directed Google to carry out the competition regulator’s directions and deposit the fine within 30 days.
The penalty of Rs 1,337.76 crore had been slapped on Google by the CCI on October 20 last year, holding the US tech giant guilty of anti-competitive practices in relation to Android mobile devices.
