India fines Google for "Search Bias"
Thursday, 08 February 2018


India’s antitrust watchdog said Thursday that Google abused its position as the dominant search engine in the country to create a search bias in favor of its own services and those of its partners, according to AP.

The Competition Commission of India said that it was imposing a fine of 1.36 billion rupees ($21 million) on Google along with a warning to desist from unfair practices.

The regulator has been investigating Google since 2012 when a website and the Consumer Unity &Trust Society complained about the internet giant's practices.
