<p>The Alphabet-owned Android manufacturer said that a tiny team of Indian developers had over three years to be ready and adhere to the Play Store’s payment policy, but they chose not to. According to Google, these businesses nevertheless abide by the payment guidelines of other app shops.</p>
<p>In a blog post, Google stated, “We are taking necessary steps to ensure our policies are applied consistently across the ecosystem, as we do for any form of policy violation globally, after giving these developers more than three years to prepare, including three weeks after the Supreme Court’s order.”</p>
<p>On Friday, Google began to remove a few of the applications. The Play Store removed the Android applications for the matrimonial platforms Shaadi, Jodii from matrimonial.com, and the name-brand app Bharat Matrimony. The dating app Quack Quack and Alt Balaji’s Altt have vanished from the Play Store as well.</p>
<p>Sanjeev Bikhchandani, the creator of Info Edge, acknowledged receiving notification from Google but said they were following Play Store guidelines. According to Bikhchandani, all of Google’s bills had been paid on time, and there were no unpaid balances. The impacted firms are concerned about this trend since their user base and income streams may be greatly impacted if their applications are removed.</p>
<p>Google has made significant foreign investments in India over the last ten years, and the country now hosts more than half a billion users. According to the business, as of Friday, the Android and Play Store ecosystems together supported over 2.5 million employment in India in 2022, with only 3% of Indian developers required to pay a service charge. According to the corporation, fees above fifteen percent apply to less than fifty developers in India.</p>
