The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has held that the entire region of NCR cannot be said to be one geographic market. The CCI was, in the dispute, elaborating on the market for provision of services for development and sale of commercial/ office space. Commission in this regard held that the conditions of competition in the market for commercial/ office space in the sub regions (Ghaziabad, Faridabad or Gurgaon) are not homogenous with that of Delhi. It was held that factors such as different regulatory authorities (and hence different rules and regulations), differential cost of land for development, prices of property, extent of urbanisation, commercial activity supported by the ecosystem, locational advantage for conducting business, availability of transportation/ travel facilities, the level of development of infrastructure, etc. being distinct in Delhi and other sub regions, the same play a crucial role in determining the consumer preferences and hence in determining the relevant market. The relevant market in the instant case was hence found to be ‘the market for provision of services for development and sale of commercial/ office space in Delhi’. [M.M. Mittal v. Paliwal Developers Ltd. - Case No. 112 of 2015, decided on 25-2-2016, CCI]
