Fast track courts

The Supreme Court of India has ruled that pressure tactics employed by a committee of artists and technicians of the film and television industry, with a view to prohibit telecast of dubbed serials, would amount to an anti-competitive practice under Section 3 of the Competition Act, 2002.

The judgment was delivered by a Bench of Justices AK Sikri and Abhay Manohar Sapre in an appeal filed by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) against the decision of Competition Appellate Tribunal (COMPAT).
