CCI rejects complaint against DLF
The matter pertained to allotment of a residential plot at the project ‘Garden City’ at a village in Lucknow district and it was alleged that the company imposed unfair terms and conditions. Earlier also, DLF had ome under the scanner of the Commission, which last year ordered at least two detailed probes against the company.
In the present case to assess whether the company violated competition norms, the watchdog considered ‘the provision of services for development and sale of residential plots in Lucknow’ as the relevant market.
Dismissing the complaint, the CCI said since DLF is not in a dominant position in the relevant market, “the question of abuse of a dominant position by it within the meaning of the provisions of Section 4 of the (Competition) Act does not arise.”
