CCI Says Final Decision On Google Antitrust Case To Take More Time

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has said that it will take some more time to decide on the case related to the alleged unfair practices of Google in the country.

CCI Chairman Ashok Chawla said that the fair trade regulator would first hear both parties involved and it being a quasi-judicial process could take quite a while.

A detailed probe report on the case in which Google is accused of abusing its dominant position in the search engine space was submitted to the CCI by its investigation arm Director General (DG).

The main allegation against Google is that it favours its own products in its search results and favours certain parties who pay it which show up as ads in the search results.

If found guilty, Google could be slapped with a fine amounting to 10% of its average annual turnover for the three years.
