This paper explores the alignment of the Indian competition enforcement approach with the perspectives put forth by the Neo- Brandeis School, the Chicago School, and the Harvard School. It further undertakes a comparative analysis of the market structures across several Indian sectors like manufacturing, services and the digital economy and then assesses their compatibility with the perspectives of these influential schools. The paper explores the institutional challenges faced by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) and highlights the need for international collaboration with an intent to tackle cross border anti-competitive practices. The paper finally concludes by providing policy recommendations for the CCI to enhance its effectiveness, acquire specialized expertise and conduct periodic reviews of merger notification thresholds. The paper adopts doctrinal and secondary doctrinal research methodology.
