The Competition Commission of India (CCI) is set to issue its decision on Google's Play Store policies as the investigation nears completion.
According to an ET report, CCI has been taking depositions from a variety of stakeholders, including the Alliance of Digital India Federation (ADIF), Match Group, and several other Indian companies. CCI has also summoned Google executives for depositions in order to obtain information. According to sources cited in the report, the most recent hearing was the last, and CCI will stick to the schedule despite Google's attempts to postpone the verdict. Google implemented a 30% commission on all Play Store transactions in 2020, which was widely condemned around the world. In India, the move was viewed as monopolistic, and CCI investigated the commissions issue as well as whether Google was blocking rival payment options in its billing process.
