It seeks to regulate ‘combinations’ that cause or are likely to cause an appreciable adverse effect on competition (AAEC) in India and the regulatory functions are exercised by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) in accordance with the provisions of the Competition Act 2002 (the Act) and the Competition Commission of India (Procedure in regard to the transaction of business relating to combinations) Regulations 2011 (the Combination Regulation), as amended from time to time.
