Competition lawtouches upon practically all aspects of commercial conduct and strategy. In India, companies must comply with competition laws, both in relation to transactions and commercial behaviour. Before the Competition Act, 2002 came into effect, the MRTP Act, 1969 was the governing legislation in respect of the competition policy in India. The present regime of competition laws in India aims at promoting efficiency and fair-play in production, supply, distribution, acquisition and control of goods or provision of services by regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies.
