Google denies wrongdoing in India

1 Min Read

Internet giant, Google has denied allegations by Indian authorities that the company was abusing its dominance in search advertising.

A three-year inquiry by the Indian Competition Commission bordering on complaints filed by several websites claimed Google had been unfairly highlighting its own services. The accusations are similar to other allegations Google has faced in the US and Europe.

The San Francisco, US based company says it is confident it will be cleared of wrongdoing in India.

The firm has ten days to respond to the findings by the Indian Competition Commission.

Google is already facing allegations in Europe that it influences its shopping results to put rivals at a disadvantage.

European regulators are currently examining whether the internet company manipulated search results to steer traffic away from rival sites that could diminish its advertising sales.

Google has equally denied these allegations. If it loses the case in Europe, the firm could be faced with a multi-billion dollar fine.

Regulators in the US wrapped up a probe into Google’s practices in 2013, concluding the company did not have to make any major changes to how it ranks websites.
