pricing, cartels and other such abuses are observed. Keeping the same in vision, what remedies does the Indian Competition Act provide and how has the jurisprudence been evolving in India? References to comparative jurisdictions would be appreciated.
2. With considerable consolidation and M&A(s) both by overseas companies and Indian companies, the pharmaceutical sector in India has hit hurdles in recent past. What role does CCI play as a regulator in merger control? Provide arguments to establish your position.
