Madrid Due to its strong and effective position in the tech sector, Google has once again been found guilty of arbitrariness. Italy’s antitrust watchdog has imposed a fine of Rs 904 crore on Google.
The use of electric vehicles in Italy has increased. 95 thousand public charging stations have been built in the European Union, including Italy, for these vehicles. Due to this, people do not worry about ending the charging path of the vehicle. To enhance the convenience, Enlil-X, a branch of Enlil, a governmental organization of Italy, built an app called Juspas. This allows citizens to know the address of the nearest charging station. Google did not like this. It did not allow JusPass to run on its Android Auto platform.

After investigation, accepting the complaints as correct, AGCM said that Google has done wrong by stopping the app on its platform. Convicted of misusing Google monopoly The penalty was imposed on the basis of the EU’s Competition Agreement. According to section 102 of the agreement, Google has been convicted of misusing monopoly and obstructing the competition. The use of electric vehicles is increasing rapidly. In such a situation, it is objectionable to limit the related app. 73.6 thousand crore fine in three years, this is not the first penalty on Google for anti-competitive activities. In the last only three years, the EU’s Competition Regulatory Commission has imposed a fine of $ 1000 million, or about 73,600 crore rupees on Google.
