"Whether “super apps” could lead to issues of privacy and anti-trust" Rajat Prakash shares insights!
In the aftermath of Covid-19, the lure of online platforms driving growth in the future has led to many business groups to go digital. After Reliance unfurled the flag with Jio Platforms, many large traditional Indian corporates, including the Tatas, are looking to launch their own platform, or super app, as part of doing business in a digitized world.
Discussing the issue with Business Line (aka The Hindu Business Line), RAJAT PRAKASH, Managing Partner, Athena Legal states that this does raise the question of whether “super apps” could lead to issues of privacy and anti-trust as they become players and referees for the entire app ecosystem. This could result in a super app being a dominant player in the market thereby creating entry barriers for other market participants.
