Competition Distortions in India

 

Effective competition plays an important role in developing countries. It is necessary for country’s economic growth and delivering consumer welfare. However, with the exception of trade barriers, little is known about the scope and nature of impediments to competitive market outcomes in developing economies. India is no exception. Therefore based on the need, these periodic dossiers look at the interface of policy issues which has an impact on competition in India, which can be both negative and positive. News as published is used without verifying their accuracy. The purpose is to flag issues to the layman as well as to the specialised policymakers and regulators, rather than be judgmental about them. This would require greater analysis particularly in terms of cost and benefits.
