Google appeals against India’s fine over business practices on Android

Google said on Friday it has appealed against the Indian antitrust body’s order against the firm over alleged anti-competitive practices related to Android mobile devices in the key overseas market.

The company has approached the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), the nation’s appellate tribunal, to appeal against the Competition Commission of India’s October order, in which the watchdog fined Google $162 million.

“We have decided to appeal the CCI’s decision on Android as we believe it presents a major setback for our Indian users and businesses who trust Android’s security features, and potentially raising the cost of mobile devices,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement.

“We look forward to making our case in NCLAT and remain committed to users and partners.”

In October, the CCI, which began investigating Google three and a half years ago, said that Google requiring device manufacturers to pre-install its entire Google Mobile Suite and mandating prominent placement of those apps “amounts to imposition of unfair condition on the device manufacturers” and thus was in “contravention of the provisions of Section 4(2)(a)(i) of the Act.”
