Competition Commission probing Google in four cases: Jaitley
cancel

New Delhi: The Competition Commission, which had ordered probes against Google in four different cases for alleged abuse of dominant market position, has received a combined investigation report in two cases till date, parliament was told on Friday.

"In two cases filed by Consim Info Pvt Ltd and Consumer Unity and Trust Society (CUTS), both against Google Inc and Google India Pvt Ltd, a combined investigation report has been submitted by DG (director general), CCI," Corporate Affairs Minister Arun Jaitley told the Lok Sabha in a written reply.

"The cases filed do not allege any financial loss to the government," he added.

Two other cases have been filed by Vishal Gupta and Albion InfoTel Ltd against Google Inc,
Google Ireland Ltd and Google India.

The fair trade regulator has directed its investigation arm, the DG, to investigate these cases under the provisions of the Competition Act, the minister said.

Consim Info and CUTS had approached the CCI alleging that Google had abused its dominant position position through practices such as search bias, search manipulation, denial of access, and by creation of entry barriers for competing search engines.

In March 2013, the CCI fined Google Rs.1 crore for failure to comply with the DG's investigation by not providing all requested information.
