Abstract: It is important for the Government to keep the market in check and to maintain a standard of conduct where it promotes a healthy competition between all the players in the market. It is here where the Competition Commission of India (CCI) comes into play as the major regulator who lays down the rules and regulations, prohibiting anti-competitive behaviour and promoting competition in a market. Competition Commission of India was established by the Central Government in 2003 to eliminate practices having adverse effect on competition, promote and sustain competition, protect the interests of consumers and ensure freedom of trade in the markets of India. The Competition Commission of India is empowered under Section-3 and Section-4 of the Competition Act which define the law of anti-competitive agreements and abuse of dominant position in the market. One of the anti-competitive practices in the market is of cartelization. A market is said to be cartelized when the players in the market collude to coordinate an arrangement in order to increase profits. Cartelization being an anti-competitive agreement is considered unlawful under the Competition Act of India.This paper dives into the problem of cartelization in the Indian civil aviation industry and discuss it at length with the help of case studies providing a critical analysis of how cartelization is prevalent in the aviation industry and how Competition Commission of India has prevented anti-competitive measures through its regulations in the aviation market.
