Conflict of interest” exclusion in tender not anti-competitive
June 11, 2022
The CCI rejected a complaint by a cargohandling company, Swastik Road Carrier (Swastik), that the Central Railside Warehouse Company (OP) had rejected its bid in a tender for handling cargo at a railside warehousing complex in Madhya Pradesh. The CCI reiterated its long-standing view that a procurer, as a consumer, could stipulate certain technical specifications in a tender document as it required, which could not be deemed anti-competitive if commercially justifiable.
