India: Merger Control

Competition law in India is governed and regulated by the Competition Act 2002 (the Competition Act) and its underlying regulations. On 1 June 2011, the merger control regime in India came into effect. The Competition Commission of India (CCI) also issued the Competition Commission of India (Procedure in regard to the transaction of business relating to combinations) Regulations 2011 (the Regulations), which have been amended annually. The CCI amended the Regulations (the Amendment Regulations) on 8 January 2016. In general, these amendments should result in fewer and less burdensome filings, though some concerns remain.
