The Competition Act 2002 (the Act) regulates the markets in India with the objective of promoting and sustaining competition in the market. The Competition Commission of India (CCI),1 established under the provisions of the Act, is the main agency entrusted with the duty to regulate and eliminate practices having an adverse effect on competition in India. The Act is largely patterned on the European Union (EU) competition law and governs three main areas: anticompetitive conduct, abuse of dominance and combinations. This article seeks to provide a broad overview on enforcement of provisions relating to the unilateral conduct of enterprises and explores the trends in different areas of Indian competition law jurisprudence relating to abuse of dominance.
