Controversy over non-payment of fees, Google removed several Indian applications from the Play Store

Google has removed some of India’s most important applications from the Play Store over its payment issue, sparking a fresh row between the Indian government and Google.
According to news agency Reuters, Google on Friday removed India’s popular matrimonial app ‘Bharat Matri Muni’ as well as job search app ‘Nukri’ from its Play Store.
