CCI is set to issue its decision on Google’s Play Store policies

As the inquiry nears its conclusion, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) is prepared to announce its ruling regarding Google’s Play Store policies.

The Alliance of Digital India Federation (ADIF), Match Group, and several other Indian businesses have provided depositions to CCI, according to a story in ET. Additionally, CCI has requested depositions from Google executives in order to gather information. The most recent hearing was the last, and despite Google’s attempts to push back the decision, the report’s sources claim that CCI will follow the timeline.

In 2020, Google began charging a 30% commission on all Play Store purchases. This move was roundly criticised at the time. The action was considered monopolistic in India, and the CCI looked into the commission’s matter as well as any potential restriction of competing payment options by Google during the billing process.
