The NCLAT, on January 11, refused to stay the CCI order and asked Google to cease and desist from abusive practices in the Playstore

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) on Friday filed a caveat before Supreme Court to avert any relief to Google without informing the regulator, acting a day after the top court refused to grant an interim stay to the technology giant in a case related to Android devices.
The CCI’s caveat relates to its separate order that on October 25 imposed a fine of Rs 936.44 crore on Google for abusing its dominant position through its Play Store policies. Google had moved the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) against this order. 
A caveat asks a court that certain actions should not be taken without informing the person (in this case CCI) who gave the notice.
