Google India being investigated for allegedly blocking competitor’s ads

Competition Commission of India has sparked a fresh investigation against Google for alleged abuse of its dominant position in online search advertising. Google Helpouts is the service introduced by Google to reach out to the experts for free or paid guidance. Similar service was already being run in India by Shyam Garmet Group of Companies offering remote technical support services. The advertisements of the client were not only blocked but the Google Adwords account was also¬†terminated. Though Google promised to review the advertisement thoroughly to see it complied to the Google’s Ad policies, the client’s Adwords account was withdrawn. LINK
