The government in India has taken a stand after Google recently removed various apps, including popular matrimony apps, from its Play Store due to disputes over service fee payments. Minister of Electronics & Information Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw, emphasized the importance of protecting Indian startups, stating that their fate should not be determined by large tech companies. The move by Google sparked criticism from app developers and startup founders, leading to a scheduled meeting next week to address the ongoing issue. The dispute revolves around Google’s revised fee structure for in-app payments, affecting several businesses. While Google defended its actions, affected parties expressed concerns, urging for app reinstatement. Industry associations like IAMAI condemned the app delisting and called for a reconsideration of Google’s decision. This development highlights the growing tensions between tech giants and Indian startups, raising questions about fair practices and policies within the digital ecosystem.
