Google on Friday removed the popular payment app Paytm from its Play Store. However, after a few hours, it was restored again. But annoyed by the actions of US tech giant Google, the founder of Paytm Vijay Shekhar Sharma has accused Google of misusing the monopoly. They allege that Google has misused its authority to expand its payment business and improperly tried to attract customers.
Accused Google of working for Own Benefits
Sharma said that his company did nothing wrong. He gave more than 300 million subscribers to Paytm, saying their money was completely safe. He claimed that Google took unilateral action against Paytm before giving notice. Google itself was the judge, executioner and beneficiary of this entire operation. He claimed that Google has power and of course they are bothering us. Google has done this to stop Paytm from adding new customers so that other Payments apps will benefit from it. These include Google’s own app. He accused Google of working for his own benefit.
This is why Paytm has been Removed
Google argued that removing Paytm from the Play Store was betting on it. Sharma claimed that his app did nothing wrong. 97 percent of the country’s smartphone ecosystem is dominated by Google through its Android operating system. Asked if Google was misusing its position, Sharma said it was correct. India’s laws do not apply to Google, it operates on its own policy. Google’s headquarters are in Mountain View, USA. He said that China’s Alibaba Group is the largest investor in Paytm. The government is emphasizing a self-reliant India and it should be seen that domestic business is not affected in the hands of any foreign company.
