The Competition Act, 2002 (the Act) is the principal legislation dealing with competition law in India. Despite having been enacted in 2002, the substantive provisions of the Act were only partly brought into force on 20 May 2009. The Act deals with three substantive aspects: the prohibition of anti-competitive agreements, the prohibition of abuse of dominance and the regulation of combinations (merger control).
