The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has given its approval to the Google-Jio Platforms deal. Earlier in July 2020, Google had bought around 7.73 per cent stake in Jio Platforms for Rs 337.37 billion.

Following CCI’s approval, the duo will now jointly develop entry level Android smartphones.

Google will be making the investment into the digital arm of Reliance Industries through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Google International LLC (GIL).
