SC to waive Rs 2,200 crore fine on Google? Know the whole case

New Delhi: Global technology major Google has sought relief from the Supreme Court on the basis of a delay in hearing the appeal filed before the NCLAT against the Competition Commission of India (CCI) decision on misuse of its dominance in the Android mobile ecosystem.

Google has said in its petition filed in the Supreme Court that the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) has failed to assess the consequences of refusing to grant interim relief to it. According to Google, 'in the absence of interim relief, it will have to make changes to the status quo maintained for 14-15 years, and from January 19, it will also have to change its entire business model.' This petition of Google is going to be heard on Monday (January 16). In this, he has challenged the Supreme Court's move of NCLAT refusing to grant interim relief against the CCI order.

Explain that, in October 2022, the Competition Commission had also imposed a fine of about Rs 2,200 crore on Google, blaming it for hurting competition. Of this, a fine of Rs 1,337.76 crore was imposed for abusing its dominant position in the context of the Android system used in 97 percent of mobile phones. At the same time, a fine of Rs 936 crore was imposed regarding the policies related to Play Store.

CCI Google had appealed against this order in NCLAT, but it did not get any interim relief from there. On January 4, the tribunal refused to stay the order of the CCI, saying that the appeal was filed on December 20, two months after the order came. However, denying this, Google has said in its petition that the CCI order is going to be effective from January 19, 2023, and it had filed an appeal in NCLAT a month before that. The company has said that it cannot be penalized for exercising its right of appeal.
