The regulator accused Google of « abusing » its dominant position on the app store to force app developers to use its in-app payment system.

It asked the tech giant to not restrict app developers from using third-party billing or payment services.

Google said it was reviewing the allegations.

« By keeping costs low, our model has powered India’s digital transformation and expanded access for hundreds of millions of Indians, » a Google spokesperson told the BBC.

« We remain committed to our users and developers and are reviewing the decision to evaluate the next steps, » the spokesperson added.

In a 199-page order released on Tuesday, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) said that Google was implementing certain policies on its Play Store that required app developers to « exclusively » use its payments system for distributing or selling apps and in-app services.

The regulator asked Google to adopt eight remedies or operations adjustments within three months, including not restricting « app developers from using any third-party billing/payment processing services, either for in-app purchases or for purchasing apps », according to Reuters.

« Google should ensure complete transparency in communicating with app developers and details about service fees charged, » the CCI added.

The order is the latest setback for Google, which is facing a series of anti-trust allegations in India.
