Near the Planckian scales, quantum gravity is expected to drastically change the structure of spacetime, one feature of which may be noncomutativity of the coordinates. Based on the recent advances in
quantum field theories on such noncommutative spaces, I will consider the
fluctuations of inflaton and look for possible noncommutative corrections
in the CMB. Anisotropy and non-gaussianity are the result. The resultant
distribution is then compared with ACBAR, CBI and WMAP data to constrain
the scale of noncommutativity parameter.
