Google's mistake due to which a fine of 1337 crores was imposed, the amount will have to be paid in 30 days

Whenever we have to get any information about anything, we search for it on Google. Immediately after our search, information about the related thing appears on our mobile, computer or laptop. People's trust in Google, the search engine that gives accurate information about everything to the whole world, is now becoming like a book and a newspaper. But this search engine has been fined Rs 1337.76 crore. The company will have to pay this huge amount of fine in the next 30 days. Many people are curious as to why this penalty was imposed on Google, the company which answers all the questions of the world. Let's know what is this whole matter.

A hefty fine of Rs 1337.76 crore has been imposed on Google by the Competition Commission of India (CCI). This fine was imposed in the month of September last year. Google filed an appeal against this fine in the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT). But on Wednesday this appeal of Google was rejected. NCLAT said that Google will have to pay a penalty of Rs 1,337.76 crore imposed by the Competition Commission of India (CCI).

In fact, on Wednesday, a two-member bench of NCLAT directed Google to comply with the CCI order and deposit the amount within 30 days. On October 30, 2022, CCI imposed a fine of Rs 1,337.76 crore on Google for anti-competitive practices with respect to Android mobile devices.

The competition watchdog had also asked the internet giant to refrain from indulging in various unfair business practices. Google challenged this decision before the NCLAT, which is an appellate authority on orders passed by the CCI. Now after the appeal from NCLAT is rejected, what is the next step for Google, time will tell.

Google is accused of taking unfair advantage of its position in the Android ecosystem. CCI has fined it for anti-competitive practice related to the Play Store policy. Due to the Google Play Store policy, Google benefits from the apps being released in the market. Earlier, in 2017, Google was fined more than 4 billion euros in the European Union case. Which was also paid for by the company.
