The Competition Commission of India has ordered a new probe against Google, which has been accused of abusing its dominant position in the search market. The probe is based on a fresh complaint filed by one Vishal Gupta who said that Google’s AdWordds program is not transparent.
The commission said
Google’s practices prima facie stem, to a large degree, from its undisputable dominance in the online search market.
Gupta said that his Adword’s account, which was created to advertise his tech support company, was suspended by Google in an unfair manner to promote its own Helpouts tool. Other remote tech support companies also faced similar problems, he said.
In March 2014, the Competition Commission of India fined Google Rs 1 cr for not supplying information related to another anti trust investigation based on a complaint filed by Matrimony.com and Consumer Unity & Trust Society (CUTS).
