India can now start exporting mangoes to European Union again as the ban on the same has been lifted by the European Commission.

Mango exports to EU were valued at $10.9 million in 2013 and the ban had been a major setback for India.

Although the mangoes are good to go to EU, the ban on vegetables is still intact.

India took major steps to improve capacity, inspecting staff and infrastructure along with implementing standard operating procedure to guarantee safe exports which has helped in lifting the ban.

Google said Thursday it will start giving European Union smartphone users a choice of browsers and search apps on its Android operating system, in changes designed to comply with an EU antitrust ruling.

Following an Android update, users will be shown two new screens giving them the new options, Google product management director Paul Gennai said in a blog post.

The EU’s executive Commission slapped the Silicon Valley giant with a record 4.34 billion euro (then $5 billion) antitrust fine in July after finding that it abused the dominance of Android by forcing handset and tablet makers to install Google apps, reducing consumer choice.

The commission had ordered Google to come up with a remedy or face further fines. The company, which is appealing the ruling, said the changes are being rolled out over the next few weeks to both new and existing Android phones in Europe.

Android users who open the Google Play store after the update will be given the option to install up to five search apps and five browsers, Gennai said. Apps will be included based on their popularity and shown in random order. Users who choose a search app will also be asked if they want to change the default search engine in the phone’s Chrome browser.
