India: CCI awaits results of Google investigation

The Competition Commission of India is reportedly awaiting the report from its investigative arm of an inquiry into Google and allegations of anticompetitive abuses in the nation.

In a statement, the CCI said it received information of abuse of dominance by Google; in response, the authority said, it ordered its director general to investigate the issue. The watchdog is now awaiting the results of that investigation.

The investigation reportedly centers around claims that Google is abusing its market dominance in the online search industry. Similar claims have been brought in other jurisdictions around the globe, including in the US and Europe.

Officials in the US settled with Google, but the matter across the Atlantic is not yet over as the European Commission considers whether to settle the matter or require further concessions from the global industry giant.
