COVID-19 updates: Indian competition law dimension
March 21, 2020
In a connected world, India is as affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as other parts of the world and, as the situation develops rapidly, we have assessed the impact of the changing business scenarios through the lens of competition law.
The COVID-19 outbreak has raised immediate concerns about the availability of essential products and services in India and in other countries affected by the virus. In the longer term, there is likely to be a significant impact on economies across the globe. As part of a panoply of measures to combat the outbreak and address its implications, competition law and policy have an important part to play. This is clearly the case in India which has a developed and functioning competition regime.
