About the Course

Competition law deals with market failures on account of restrictive business practices in the market. It is the law that promotes or maintains market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct by players in the market. Competition Law is recognized as one of the key pillars of the market economy.

The benefits of competition for economic growth and consumer welfare are well recognized and therefore, strict enforcement of competition law is a big challenge for any competition authorities.

Competition law believes in the premise that the unrestrained interaction of the competitive forces in the market will yield the best allocation of economic resources, lower prices, improve quality and maximum material progress for the citizens.
