ACKNOWLEGMENT
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Competition Commission of India (CCI) where I was provided an opportunity to intern, research and write this paper on a contemporary topic. My internship with the CCI has been extremely enriching and given me the requisite impetus to improve my understanding and technical nuances in the field of Competition Law. I would like to stress on the fact that I was very welcomed and received the warm support and assistance of each and every member of the Commission I interacted with.

I am highly indebted to Mr. Kulvinder Singh Jaggi, Director Law, who was a guiding light in preparing this paper and shared his views and guided me during our many interactions. I am also grateful to Ms. Geeta Gouri who encouraged me with her ideas shared during the presentations at the Commission.

I am thankful to Mr. Anil Kumar Sharma, Assistant Director (Research), for guiding and assisting me throughout my internship.
Last but not the least, I would like to thank my Family without whose support and inspiration, this project would have been possible.
