Hey Dhruv

I hope your App's name is Android L Contacts. The word android is a copyrighted name and using the word android unless you have the permission it is a breach of google play policy which is "violation of intellectual property and impersonation". This must the reason behind it.

Yes, the project is but using the name android in Google Play is a violation. there are only 3 things comes under this.

  1. Using copyrighted names, Icons or text.
  2. Naming your app like the existing app. I hope Android L Calc came before your app and that app was from different user.
  3. Making an app similar to the device app such as camera, contact and messaging.

I hope your app is mainly comes under 2&3.
