The Delhi High Court has decided not to interfere with the Competition Commission of India’s investigation into WhatsApp’s new privacy policy. The appeals filed by WhatsApp are adjourned until the tabling in the parliament of  India’s Data Protection Bill.

The Delhi HC bench granted more time to WhatsApp and Meta to file their response over notices issued to them by the antitrust regulator.

Last year in March, CCI had ordered a probe into the new privacy policy of WhatsApp after making a prima facie observation that it breached the Competition Act 2000.

The senior advocate Harish Salve appeared on monday on behalf of WhatsApp to assure the court the company would conform with the law.
