SC orders status quo on CCI probe against Uber
The Supreme Court today ordered status quo on the Competition Commission of India (CCI) probe against Uber for predatory pricing allegations by Meru Cabs.
A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and D Y Chandrachud also sought responses from CCI and Meru Cabs on the matter.
Uber has challenged the order of the appellate tribunal passed last year directing Director General of CCI to investigate the allegations of predatory pricing alleged by Meru Cabs.
Senior advocate Harish Salve said that the appellate tribunal has not formed any prima facie opinion and despite that, the investigation was ordered.
The bench posted the matter for further hearing on February 17.
