A panel in India suggests passing the digital competition act to control Big Tech

An Indian parliamentary committee on Thursday suggested that the government create a digital competition law to regulate Big Tech companies’ anti-competitive business practices on their platforms.

The administration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has strained ties with a number of major tech giants, and New Delhi has begun tightening regulations on companies like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

The Antitrust Commission of India (CCI), the nation’s competition authority, has already investigated Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Apple for suspected abuses of the application market.
