The Competition
Commission of India had ordered probe against Google in four different cases
for alleged abuse of dominant position while it has received a combined
investigation report in two cases so far, Parliament was informed on Friday, reports
Business Today.

Minister of
Corporate Affairs Arun Jaitley told the Lok Sabha that Competition Commission
of India (CCI) has received four cases against Google for alleged abuse of
dominant position.

CCI has directed
its Director General (DG) to investigate these cases under the provisions of
the Competition Act, Jaitley said in a written reply.

“In two
cases filed by Consim Info Pvt Ltd and Consumer Unity & Trust Society, both
against Google Inc and Google India Pvt Ltd, a combined investigation report
has been submitted by DG, CCI,” Jaitley was quoted in the report as saying.

DG is the
investigation arm of the regulator and cases are referred to it by the
Commission when there is prima-facie evidence of violations.

According to the
report, two other cases have been filed against Vishal Gupta and Albion InfoTel
Ltd. These have been filed against Google Inc, Google Ireland Ltd and Google
India.

“The cases
filed do not allege any financial loss to the government,” Jaitley told
the Business Today.

To a separate
query on whether there have been violations of Companies Act, 2013, by private
companies with regard to payment of salary and other allowances to employees,
in the last three years, he said in the report that the relevant provisions
came into force only from April 1, 2014.

“The
salaries of managerial personnel or employees of a private company, except the
salaries of board level managerial personnel of a subsidiary of a listed
company are not regulated under the Act,” he noted in another written
reply.
