ABOUT THIS COURSE
Competition Law has placed itself in a crucial role in the regulatory framework of the country in a very short span of time. The industrial watchdog i.e. the Competition Commission of India has become a complex and strict body which makes sure that all the rules and regulations of the competition law have to be followed. The rise in Foreign Direct Investment has given an opportunity to the commission to get hold of the industries and to put heavy fines for non-compliance. The role of competition commission has been identified as a strict regulator in the past seven years. The mergers & acquisitions and the increase in trade in business in the developing economy have many loopholes which are favourable for the industries. The strict competition law compliance has made these loopholes a not so easy road to travel.

It will also cover how the Competition Commission has become a strict regulator and how the capital market is working in coping up with the strict competition law compliance. It will also give an overview of the role and responsibilities of the Director General and the Competition Commission in terms of the competition regime in India.
