The Competition Commission of India (CCI) celebrated the 13th Annual Day on May 20, which was attended by Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as Chief Guest. The event was held at DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) Bhavan in New Delhi.

In her address, Sitharaman emphasized the need to look at situations that don’t cause either price hikes or supply manipulation. Talking about the real reasons behind supply disruptions, the minister said Covid-19 has shown cascading effects and threatened the country’s economy.

Amid the rising inflation and geopolitical tensions, Sitharaman urged the CCI to upskill itself in dealing with new challenges in the fast-changing domestic and international business landscape. She also said that CCI should have a proactive approach and understanding of what is shaping markets in the ongoing crisis.

Sitharaman also virtually inaugurated the Eastern regional office of CCI in Kolkata. This is the second regional office after the Southern regional office in Chennai, which opened last year. While launching an upgraded website of CCI, she called on CCI to understand the technical nuances of the new digital era and if these markets are being used fairly, effectively, and transparently for the benefit of consumers.

Sitharaman also released CCI’s Competition Advocacy Booklets translated into two more languages—Kannada and Malayalam. Appreciating the CCI for adding two more languages, Sitharaman also emphasized the importance of including FAQs on the website so that users don’t have to browse through the booklet multiple times. She believes that FAQs should be utilized to distribute information in a ready-to-use format, bolstering CCI’s position as a proactive and forward-thinking statutory body and that such guidance will assist market players in taking preventative steps.

The challenges are becoming more complicated, complex, and technology-driven. She added that the Competition Commission will need to have certain skill sets in order to stay on top of challenges and never fall behind. According to her, cartelization would be an issue due to corporations scaling up and expanding into areas where demand is high.

CCI Chairperson Ashok Kumar Gupta also stated in his address that the agency has created a solid body of legislation across sectors over the past 13 years. The CCI has analyzed over 1,100 antitrust cases, and 900 mergers, and organized over 1,200 advocacy events in the last 13 years.

Moving ahead, Gupta said that toolkits for antitrust and mergers should be sharpened to account for the data-centric environment, as India has become one of the largest and fastest expanding digital consumer bases in the world.
