Call for Papers
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) is a statutory body established under the Competition Act, 2002 with the objective to prevent practices having an adverse effect on competition, to promote and sustain competition in markets, to protect the interest of consumers and to ensure freedom of trade carried on by other participants in markets in India. CCI is also mandated to take suitable measures for the promotion of competition law through organising various advocacy programmes for the stakeholders.
In furtherance of the above, CCI as a public institution is engaged in encouraging scholarship in the field of competition law and policy so as to develop a better understanding of competition issues relevant in the Indian context, to draw inferences for implementation of competition law and to create a culture of competition in India. In pursuit of the same, the Commission is publishing its annual Journal on Competition Law and Policy in both print and online versions.
