The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has imposed a penalty of Rs. 19.2 crore on South Asia LPG Company Ltd (SALPG) for denying market access to East India Petroleum Pvt. Ltd. (EIPL).

The CCI found SALPG guilty of abuse of its dominant position for limiting upstream terminalling services for import of LPG at Visakhapatnam port.

Noting that denial of market access is one of the most severe forms of abuse of dominant position, the Commission imposed a penalty of 10% of SALPG . . .
