Delhi High Court denies the request
The Delhi High Court maintains the single judge bench’s decision. The order is that the CCI has the authority to continue the investigation.
Facebook and WhatsApp contested this, but in June 2021, a single judge’s bench of the court dismissed this argument. The court has to reconsider this by the major social media companies. Additionally, a vacation bench must be available.

The CCI further argued that the information gathered would include a person’s location, the type of device they are using, their internet service provider, and who they are speaking to.
