The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) that handles brand marketing for Amul has issued a legal notice to Google Pvt Ltd and domain provider godaddy.com accusing them of misusing their platform to gain advertisement.
According to a source, some innocent people have been cheated because of this as they have paid between 3 lakhs – 5 lakhs to get franchisee, distributorship or parlours but they were cheated on knowing that they were fake websites searched on google.
“There is a number of fake websites and advertisements in the name of Amul. “We have also filed a complaint with Gujarat cyber cell to investigate the matter,” he said, adding that Amul is hoping that before taking any paid ad for big brands like Amul, Google India should check the background of the person who is placing the ad,” said GCMMF managing director R S Sodhi.
Amul Authorities also said that a series of fake b2b activities regarding their parlours & distributorship has been going on using google since September 2018.
The police official said is that the F.I.R against Google is yet to be lodged, it has been halted due to vibrant Gujarat preparations.
