Indian competition law roundup: August 2019
September 5, 2019
In this Roundup, we highlight the main developments in Indian competition law in August 2019.
Competition Law Review Committee
The Report of the Competition Law Review Committee (Committee) was published by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs on 14 August 2019.1 The Committee was tasked with reviewing and recommending a robust competition regime and was to suggest changes in the substantive and procedural aspects of the law. Our Managing Partner, Mrs. Pallavi Shroff, was a member of the Committee. The 218-page Report was comprehensive and covered a wide variety of topics. The Committee made a large number of recommendations in relation to the regulatory architecture and functioning of the Competition Commission of India (CCI), the definition of various terms in the Competition Act, anti-competitive agreements, abuse of dominant position, combinations, technology and new age markets, and competition advocacy. Please see our earlier Competition Matters briefing for a summary of the recommendations contained in the Report.
