He expressed concern that Google is operating in violation of Indian law and expressed the hope that the Prime Minister’s office is paying attention.

Mr. Mittal posted the following on Twitter: “Received a call today ordering Google payments for Indian developers in continuous violation & disdain of CCI_India orders & Indian laws. At its worst, neocolonialism I hope @PMOIndia, the courts, and the media are paying attention that the Digital East India Co. is present.

When asked by a Twitter user if he was alluding to the 30% commission that the tech giant wants, the “Shark Tank India” judge said, “amongst other things.”

Mr. Mittal told Inc42 that he had received a warning that if his business didn’t adhere to the new rules by April 26 then its apps will be removed from the Play Store.

“We won’t give up the war without a fight… According to both our understanding of the law and the law as it currently stands, what they are asking us to do is essentially illegal. They (Google) are claiming that I am your ruler, and that you must follow my orders rather than those of your country’s institutions, courts, or legal system, Mr. Mittal said.
Mr. Mittal stated that he is using his own set of tactics to get in touch with higher ups and move the situation in the correct way.
