While admitting the plea of Google against the order, the NCLAT bench headed by Chairman Justice S J Mukhopadhaya directed the internet major to deposit 10 per cent of the penalty amount with it in four weeks. The NCLAT listed the matter for hearing on May 28. A Google spokesperson said: “NCLAT has accepted our appeal for review of aspects of the CCI decision and its associated findings.” The CCI in February had imposed a fine of Rs 136 crore on search engine major Google for unfair business practices in the Indian market for online search.
