India application developers and tycoons have started requesting an application which is an alternative to Google Play. In India, google play is an extremely dominated application. The company proclaimed a 30% fee for the applications and they are available on Google Play but the application is not using the company’s billing system.
The newest move will come in after a couple of weeks after the company briefly pulled Paytm from the google play store for disrespecting the content rule. As per the reports, the tech giant has also called out the food delivery service.

CEO of Paytm has led some app developers and tycoons to produce an Indian alternative to Google Play. Around 97% of app developers already use Google Play store’s billing system.

Though, the decision to bring a substitute is not only going to help the app makers to recollect their incomes from in-app purchases but also, It is going to get a self-governing stage to support local applications.


The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has sought to understand and resolve the removed companies’ concerns of Google Play in India.

After Paytm being removed from the google play store for not following google’s terms and conditions, the company has planned on searching for android developers to make an Indian version of google play store.

Before Paytm, Doosra is another app that was removed from the google play store after a week of the formal launch in September. The app is designed for dealing with spam calls by providing a virtual mobile number.

Google has also punished certain other companies for not complying with the tech giant’s rules and regulations. These firms include Zomato and swiggy.

Although swiggy is told to hold the feature of gamification as ordered by google. And as per Zomato, the company is going to replace the premier league with some other interesting program as it has to keep up with the tech giant company’s guidelines.

Therefore, many companies believe that there must be an alternative that will provide a user ban if in case, any company gets banned from google play store.
