The Competition Commission of India has started a fresh inquiry against the search engine Google for abuse of dominant position and anti-competitive practices.
The competition commission has launched the inquiry on a complaint filed by consumer rights body CUTS International.
CUTS International said in a statement on Monday that its complaint against Google followed global actions against the search engine giant for its abusive practices.
CUTS International had filed the complaint last month saying Google was abusing its dominant position in the Indian market by indulging in anti-competitive practices in various ways.
The consumer advocacy group has complained to the Competition Commission of India that Google was imposing unfair and discriminatory conditions on customers and manipulating algorithmic as well as paid search results by penalising certain websites and advertisers.
