Two research associates at the Competition Commission of India had filed the case, along with an intern who was at the CCI for a short time, Reuters reported.
Umar Javeed and Sukarma Thapar worked along with Aaqib Javeed to file the case, something unusual but not in anyway unlawful.
S.L. Bunker, a senior CCI official, said: “They deserve appreciation, they have done a commendable job.
India has fined Google once, levying a penalty of 135.86 crore rupees (about US$21.1 million) for "abusing its dominant position in online general Web search and Web search advertising services in India".
This was in February 2018, with the CCI saying at the time that the fine had levied following complaints by two websites in 2012: matchmaking website Bharat Matrimony (Matrimony.com) and the non-profit Consumer and Trust Society.
The CCI can fine a company up to 10% of its turnover in the previous three financial years for abusing a dominant market position.
Google has already faced a number of fines for alleged anti-competitive activity. In March, the EU fined Google for alleged abuse of its AdSense advertising service, and told the company to fork out €1.49 billion (A$2.38 billion) for breaching EU anti-trust rules.
In July last year, the EU fined Google €4.3 billion for allegedly breaching anti-trust rules over its Android mobile operating system..
In June 2017, Google was fined €2.42 billion for allegedly abusing its search engine dominance to give illegal advantage to its own comparison shopping service. The company has appealed all the three fines too.
Apart from this, France fined Google €50 million in January for violations of the General Data Protection Regulation.
LinkedIn profiles show Umar has been working at the CCI since 2017 and passed his law degree in 2014 at the University of Kashmir, while Aaqib was due to graduate from the same university this year. Thapar graduated from an Indian law school in 2015 and joined the CCI in 2018.
