One, Google was promoting its own services over others in the search results, especially when displaying flight options.

The CCI had also observed in its order that Google was leveraging its dominance in the market for online general web search to strengthen its position in the market for online syndicate search services. That verdict has been appealed by Google.

Justifying the appeal they placed with the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), Google states, "We disagree with aspects of the CCI's decision, so we have filed an appeal and sought a stay on those findings".

In response to CCI allegations, a Google representative responded, "We have always focused on innovating to support the evolving needs of our users".

However, a CCI official has said that its judgement was "robust", and it plans to defend its verdict at the NCLAT.

Matrimony.com, according to the lawyer, has appealed against both the size of the fine, which it says is too small, and the CCI's ruling that neither Google's specialised search design or its advertising service, AdWords, were breaking competition rules.

It was alleged that Google was indulging in abuse of dominant position in the market for online search through practices leading to search bias and search manipulation, among others.

Later in July 2016, an Indian court issued a notice to Google, its CEO and India head for listing Prime Minister Narendra Modi among the world's top ten criminals in its image search results and registered a criminal case against the company.

Google Flights offers travellers the ability to quickly explore destinations and find the best flights at affordable prices.

The Indian competition watchdog's judgement which found Google guilty came on the back of the firm losing an antitrust case past year in Europe for which it was fined a massive $3 billion for favouring its own shopping service and demoting offerings from other firms.

The CCI commenced its probe on Google, its market dominance and abuse of power in 2012 after matchmaking website Bharat Matrimony and a not-for-profit organization, Consumer Unity and Trust Society (CUTS), filed a complaint against the search platform.
