  • Cartel, Bid rigging, Exclusivity, Refusal to Deal, Tie-in, Resale Price Maintenance Enforcement Activities:

The cartel as well as bid rigging is considered as the destructive type of anti competitive activities. The collection of evidence in this regard will be difficult for both CCI and DG. If the evidence is collected, then the process becomes simple when considered with various types of anti-competitive activities. Moreover, the vertical restraints which form of contracts are justifiable. The economic defenses are not strong in vertical contract when taking as safeguard against cartel. The significance of economic scrutiny are justified with regard to the assertions of vertical restraints when taken with direct proof that comes out of application with less penalty in the issues on cartels. These areas will be under discussion in the conference by the delegates.
