The Indian case was filed by a little-known, non-profit group which argues Apple's fee of up to 30% hurts competition by raising costs for app developers and customers, while also acting as a barrier to market entry.

Unlike Indian court cases, filings and details of cases reviewed by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) are not made public. Apple and the CCI did not respond to a request for comment.

In the coming weeks, the CCI will review the case and could order its investigations arm to conduct a wider probe, or dismiss it altogether if it finds no merit in it, said a source familiar with the matter.

Even google charging a similar amount, Sony and MS do the same thing. I heard Youtube charges 45% as a fee. But they choose only Apple? :ROFLMAO:

People who want to target Indian users will work on Andriod users mainly not on iOS/Apple. Apple has a very less user base in India. This is more like for some publicity rather than helping Developers and Customers. Why don't they file a case on Google or Youtube? It will really help the developers or content creators.
"Apple is not dominant in the Indian market ... Without dominance, there can be no abuse," Apple said in the submission dated Nov. 16 which was signed by its Chief Compliance Officer, Kyle Andeer.
