NCLAT upholds Rs 1,337.76 crore fine imposed on Google by competition watchdog

 Delhi, India: On Wednesday, the NCLAT upheld the CCI's decision to penalize Internet tycoon Google with a fine of Rs 1,337.76 crore.

A two-part seat of the Public Organization Regulation Re-appraising Council (NCLAT) guided Google to carry out the heading and store the sum in 30 days.

The CCI order was also modified by the NCLAT bench, led by Chairperson Justice Ashok Bhushan and Member Alok Shrivastava.

It also rejected Google's claim that the investigation conducted by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) violated natural justice.

The CCI fined Google Rs 1,337.76 crore on October 20 for engaging in anti-competitive practices with regard to Android mobile devices. The controller likewise requested the Web major to quit it from different out of line strategic policies.

The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), an appellate authority for CCI orders, was the venue for this ruling's challenge.
