Google Play Store has removed Dukaan app after Karnataka HC restrained its Co-founder Suumit Shah from running the application until the next date of hearing. Dukaan's parent Growthpond Technology sent a legal notice to KhataBook over plagiarising its logo and UI in August. In return, KhataBook's app developer ADJ Utility Apps filed a writ petition against Dukaan in Karnataka HC.
The order passed on September 25 also bars Shah from running, operating and managing the ‘Dukaan’ application on any and all online platforms including but not limited to Google Play store till the next date of hearing.
Following the order, Dukaan app was removed from the Play Store on October 2. The court will hear the matter next on November 9. Shah confirmed that Dukaan has been removed from the Play Store by Google on the basis of the court order.
