Google Vs Indian Apps: Everything You Need To Know 

On March 1, Google sent notices to dozens of apps such as, TrulyMadly, Matrimony, etc saying it would take action to delist their apps for non-compliance with Play Store policies. 

Google removed dozens of apps soon after and later published a blog to explain its actions.

While the tech giant relied on a Supreme Court decision in its favour, the companies, which filed that case, claimed Google continues to violate the Competition Commission of India (CCI) ruling from 2022. 

Bharat Matrimony,, Unacademy, Kuku FM, and Alt Digital Media were among the companies that filed the petition in the Madras HC soon after the CCI ruling, which the Supreme Court then heard.

Info Edge — the parent company of Naukri, 99Acres and Jeevansathi — claimed on Friday noon that its apps were not delisted, this changed by the evening.

And by 2nd March morning, Chennai-based Matrimony said 100 of its apps have been delisted and new business has effectively shut down.

On the same day, in the evening Union Minister For IT and Telecom Ashwini Vaishnaw said that actions such as delisting cannot be permitted. 

On March 5, a group representing startups approached the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to force the tech giant to reinstate the apps it removed over policy reasons, as per Reuters.

In the latest development, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said that all the delisted apps' status will be restored very soon to put a temporary halt to the ongoing situation between Google and Indian startups.
