The Indian antitrust office has launched an investigation into the App Store

The Indian antitrust authority confirmed last Friday the start of an investigation into the App Store. This is the result of a complaint filed against Apple by the nonprofit Together We Fight Society.

The investigation, which will be carried out over the next two months, will concern the ban on the use of alternative payment systems in applications for iOS. It is to determine whether Apple by forcing to use payments made through the App Store, on which it charges a commission of 15% to 30%, is not abusing its market position in a way that is detrimental to developers and their customers.

Two weeks ago, Apple representatives filed a motion to dismiss the complaint and not pursue the matter. They wrote that the company does not have a dominant position in India, but on the contrary – according to recent studies its market share is less than 5% – therefore the accusations of abusing its market position are unfounded. They also accused Together We Fight Society of acting on behalf of companies with which Apple is currently disputing in other countries (the application did not mention specific names, but most likely Epic Games and Spotify).
