In a relief to Sony Pictures Network India and Star India, the Bombay High Court recently quashed an order passed by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to probe the broadcasters for alleged price discrimination.

A Division Bench of Justices Akil Kureshi and SJ Kathawalla ultimately quashed the CCI order upon noting that it failed the jurisdictional test as detailed in the Supreme Court's decision in CCI v Bharti Airtel.
