Micromax filed the case stating that they had exclusive rights to Cyanogen in India, following which the honorable Court issued an order banning OnePlus One from selling their handsets in India. And now since we know the price of Micromax Yu Yureka it is clear that neither of these company are competing with each other. Yureka is selling for 8,999 and the OnePlus One is priced at Rs. 22,000.

The same argument was observed by the bench, there will be another hearing wherein both the parties can debate before a single Judge. OnePlus had also stated that the Cyanogen version on their handset is different from what is used on Yureka.
