About Competition Commission Of India

“To promote and sustain an enabling competition culture through engagement and enforcement that would inspire businesses to be fair, competitive and innovative; enhance consumer welfare, and support economic growth”. The Competition Act, of 2002, as amended by the Competition (Amendment) Act, of 2007, follows the philosophy of modern competition laws. The Act prohibits anti-competitive agreements, and abuse of dominant position by enterprises and regulates combinations (acquisition, acquisition of control, and M&A), which cause or are likely to cause an appreciable adverse effect on competition within India.

About The Moot

Liberalization of the economic policies of countries around the globe began in the eighties, and in the nineties, the participating countries entered the phase of globalization. The challenges brought with them a wide range of changes in terms of the competitive capabilities of the respective domestic markets. Market-oriented reforms have become crucial both for developed and developing countries to achieve their development and growth goals. The goal of Competition Policy and Law is to keep such reforms going in a collusive world. Global competitiveness; increased investment; technological capabilities; and consumer welfare are urgently required. Competition policy establishes guidelines for market competition, with macroeconomic goals of growth and stability, and microeconomic goals of producer-consumer welfare. Since then, the Competition Act of 2002 has been effectively implemented in the desired direction. The Act aims to improve consumer welfare and the competitiveness of small businesses in comparison to large corporations. The Act prohibits abuse of dominance, anti-competitive agreements, and unfavorable combinations.

Competition law is a relatively new branch of the law that seeks to promote fair and just business practices. It governs market competition by monitoring for anti-competitive behavior and ensuring that market participants do not engage in it. Competition law which has evolved on a national level is modern and is thriving with the goal of promoting and maintaining fair-trade practices in domestic markets.

Law schools play an important role in instilling and encouraging the growth of competition law by hosting debates, panel discussions, and moot court competitions, as well as encouraging research and legal writing on the subject. As a result, the Department of Laws at Panjab University proposes to hold a two-day National Moot Court Competition on Competition Law.
