Competition Commission of India

National Emblem


Competition Law in India came into force by virtue of enactment of Competition Act, 2002 (“the Act”) which, inter-alia, provided/ envisaged establishment of Competition Commission of India (CCI) as an Anti-trust or Competition Law Regulator of the country.

To enable CCI to reach out to its every stakeholder in an effective manner, Section 49 of the Act mandates for the Advocacy of various facets of Competition Law and role & functions of CCI.  This is imperative as competition law is a relatively newer legislation requiring creation of awareness among stakeholders- Industry, Academia, Central & State Governments, Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), Trade Associations etc.- before they fall on wrong side of competition law.

In this pursuit, a dedicated Division of CCI under the nomenclature of Advocacy Division undertakes a wide array of activities viz. seminars, conferences, workshops, interactive sessions, moot court competitions, internships, road shows, competitions assessments of legislations, essay competitions, publications of comprehensive advocacy material on various aspects of competition law etc.

As the field of Competition Law is in constant flux, Advocacy Division adopts innovative approaches so that changes occurring in the market due to various factors- digitalisation, innovative disruptions etc.- are adequately addressed to the needs of the target stakeholders. The Division has a team comprising following officers: -

Dr. Sanjay Kumar Pandey

(Head of Advocacy Division & Adviser Law)

Shri Mukul Sharma, Joint Director (Economics)

Shri Anand Vikas Mishra, Joint Director (Law)

Shri Ashok Raj Gupta, (Deputy Director-Advocacy)

Shri Nitin Kumar, (Assistant Director -Advocacy)

Shri Shailendra Pathak, (Assistant Director -Advocacy)



Dr. Sanjay Kumar Pandey,
