Google under CCI scanner for ‘abusing’ market position

NEW DELHI: The Competition Commission of India has ordered a fresh probe against internet major Google for alleged abuse of its dominant position in the online search advertising space.
The latest order came on a complaint by one Vishal Gupta against Google, Google Ireland and Google India alleging that Google Adwords accounts are extremely “opaque and not transparent.”
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) also directed its Director General (DG) to investigate the role, if any, of persons who were in charge of, and were responsible to the companies for the conduct of their businesses, after giving due opportunity of hearing to such persons.
