We are RACE Institute (located in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India), but one of our competitor Chennai School of Banking using our Brand Name (Exact) in their Google ads.
 

If someone searches for RACE Institute, it shows their advertisement with our brand name.

I want to add:

We have registered our (company) trademark under the trade act, 1999. How could someone use my trademark (company name) to develop their income?

Hi

It's common to adveritse using competitor's brand.

You have some solutions:
1 Legal - I don't know India law, but I hope it works similar. So you can ask a request to them to stop using your brand. If not, you probably can sue them.

2 Google - you can register your trademark in Google, you can to this here

3 This is war! - you should create brand campaign to protect your brand - your bids will be very low and it may discourage them to run such ads. Also I advice you to run ads targeted to their brand
