Students can choose from one of the three topics [DRAFT OUTLINES]:

1. The automobile industry in India is an example of a success story in local manufacturing. The Indian automobile market has also matured in India in the last few years with many players competing. In such a scenario, there might be cases of predatory pricing as well as price-fixing, cartels and other abuses. What regulatory remedies does the Indian Competition Act provide and how has the jurisprudence been evolving in India. References to comparative jurisdictions would be appreciated.

2. The pharmaceutical industry sector in India has seen considerable consolidation with mergers and acquisition both, by overseas companies in India and Indian companies overseas mainly for strategic marketing reasons. In such scenario do you think that the Competition Commission of India, as a regulator plays any role in merger control? Provide arguments to establish your position.

3. With the liberalization of the economy and enhancement of market competition, the role played by Competition Commission as a regulator gains utmost importance. Often, while addressing issues of fair market competition and alleged abuses by players, the regulator also addresses concerns of consumers. How do you assess the role of the Competition Commission vis-à-vis the Consumer Protection Redressal Forum as established in India. Please provide arguments supporting your position as to whether you think the Competition Commission has a role to play or the reverse.
