Sector-specific regulations and competition laws meet in a special way in India. The last several years have witnessed a sharp growth in the Indian economy. The tremendous rate of advancement has lifted millions of people out of poverty, but it has also led to the emergence of new issues. Throughout its period of economic expansion, India experienced numerous economic and other crises. During this time, the Indian legal and economic system has seen the emergence of regulatory entities. There's a chance that some of the responsibilities of these newly established regulatory entities will overlap. It is crucial to comprehend the background of the Indian regulatory tradition. The argument over whether the Competition Commission of India (CCI) should have control over the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), which regulates the telecom sector, is of great interest to academics. It's probable that CCI will also be given "cutting wings" by the government. The two primary regulators of the telecom industry, TRAI and CCI, are briefly described in this article along with an analysis of the issues that sometimes develop between them. This study also explores the issue of whether two regulators are required and concludes with some recommendations for the telecom industry.
