Abuse of dominance in the digital market, often referred to as antitrust or competition law violations, is a topic of increasing concern and regulatory focus in many countries around the world. Due to absence of a specialized Act for Digital Competition, the Competition Act, 2002 deals with the regulation of any anti-competitive behavior in the Digital Sphere, in India. The Competition Commission of India (CCI) is the regulatory authority responsible for enforcing competition law in the country. Digital markets are characterized by a few dominant players who hold significant market power, and the abuse of this power can harm competition, consumers, and innovation. In this paper I have tried to give a breif analysis on how the big players of Digital Market are misusing their position of Dominance and practicing Anti-Competitive Behaviours. I have provided a critical analysis of the current situation while linking it with Landmark cases passed by the CCI and the Supreme Court. The paper also gives glimpses of the current new age techniques that are leading to increasing anti-competitive behavior in Digital Market while trying to provide the path of solution through a Separate Competition Act for Digital Market.
