This paper discusses four of the most prominent cases adjudicated by the Competition Commission of India over the past 10 years which have shaped significant portions of the jurisprudence around competition laws in India that operates today. These cases are not merely seminal because they have clarified important ambiguities in the statute ie. the Competition Act of 2007 but also because they have laid down standards of adjudication, especially regarding the determination of relevant market that would apply to subsequent cases and would most certainly have a critical impact on the corporate scene of the nation. The instant paper tries to critically analyse the judgments while giving a brief summary of the facts situations and how the court applied the law to the relevant facts situations. The paper is essentially a commentary on the following cases viz re Mukul Kumar Govil and Ors vs ET Infra Developers Pvt. Ltd, RE Vipul Jain vs Samsung and ors, C Shanmugam and Manish Gandhi vs Reliance Jio Infocom Ltd (RJIO), XYZ vs Alphabet Inc. and ors, The paper is written in a narrative style and is a commentary on existing literature.
