India Fines Google Parent Company For $113m

India’s Competition Commission of India (CCI) has imposed a fine of $113.4 million on U.S tech giant, Google’s parent company Alphabet, for anti-competitive practices.

The country’s competition commission accused Google of abusing the dominant role of the Google Play Store by forcing app developers there to use Google’s payment system for app purchases and purchases within apps.

The competition commission also ordered the company to allow app developers to use third-party payment systems.

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) said Google (GOOGL.O) used its “dominant position” to force app developers to use its in-app payment system, noting the sale of in-app digital goods is a key means for developers to monetize their work.

The commission had earlier fined Alphabet the equivalent of $164 million for allegedly abusing the dominant role of its Android operating system to boost its main business of online searches.

Google and other Silicon Valley firms are vying for market share in India, soon to be officially the world’s most populous country.

Android phones are very popular in India.
