  • (1888PressRelease) May 29, 2012 - CCH India, a Wolters Kluwer company, has published a new book on Indian Competition Lawin an international comparative context. The book highlights the benefits - as well as the challenges - in instituting and navigating a new competition law in an emerging economy like India. The book features an appraisal of the Indian competition law and policy from international and comparative perspectives. Competition law enforcement is in its infancy in India. The book comes at a timely juncture, providing an early analysis of the decided cases, after three years of experience of the new rules on agreements and commercial practices and almost a year after the launch of mandatory merger control.

    MsRab's commentary on the Indian competition law is rich and informative against a backdrop of a globally evolving regulatory and market landscape. It would be a valuable tool for practitioners in the area, in-house counsel, academics and businesses alike.

    On the occasion Mr. Thomas Abraham, Managing Director, CCH India, said, ,"With this book 'Indian Competition law: an international perspective' CCH continues its thought-leadership and has taken a further bold step in providing professionals with operations in India the range of products of quality, user-friendliness and timeliness that those in other markets have come to expect of CCH. At a time when investors are looking at opportunities in emerging markets, the book is a must-have for those contemplating inbound investments and also cross-border activities affecting India".

    To take our commitment further, and following the success of our first Summit in 2011 where the author and leading Indian businesses and regulators introduced the new rules, CCH will also be hosting a 2ndAnnual Summit on Competition Law 2012 in July 2012. This is in tune with CCH's steadfast brand commitment to represent "The Professional's First Choice", he further added

    The book brings out the comparison of the new Indian competition regime with key global antitrust jurisdictions, traces its development and outlines the intent in a practical and a user-friendly manner. The book will even prove helpful to a layman seekingto understand the complex web of competition law as it applies in the real world.The international dimension covered in the book through notes and comparisons with EU, UK and US legislation on which the new Indian competition laws are based gives the reader a greater understanding of the local and international antitrust regime.

    MsRab's practical experience of micro-economics and business law as a lawyer facilitates smooth inroads into and renders accessible what can be challenging concepts for a subject expert and novice alike. The book concludes with a critical appraisal of how the law may be developed and made more effective in the future, providing insights for policy makers, legislators and regulators in India and beyond and for businesses operating in a dynamic enforcement environment.
