Flipkart Moves SC Over CCI Investigation

Flipkart moved the Supreme Court against an investigation by the Competition Commission of India. The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal had ordered the CCI investigation in March, alleging Flipkart of violating section 4 of the Competition Act, 2002 by abusing its dominant position in the market.

The Competition Commission of India had already given a clean chit to Flipkart in 2018 when the All India Online Vendors Association filed a complaint against Flipkart. However, NCLAT has ordered a CCI Investigation for allegations of abuse of dominance, setting aside the CCI order of 2018. Even though Flipkart had appealed in March, the case was only registered in July. AIOVA and CCI are the respondents to the case which is yet to be admitted by the Supreme Court. AIOVA has already filed a caveat in the Supreme Court to ensure it is heard on any matter of the case.
