CCI by its order dated August 25, 2015 has dismissed a case against Global Information Systems Technology Pvt. Ltd. (GIST) for alleged abuse of dominance. It was alleged that the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), apex body constituted for regulating technical education in India has subscribed mandatory subscription of journals by technical educational institutions which were available with GIST only. As such, it was alleged that GIST enjoy a dominant position and is abusing the same by pricing the journals exorbitantly. CCI noted that the subscription of the academic journals can be done either directly from the publishers or through their agents like GIST. However, it could not be established if the AICTE has granted exclusivity to GIST. In fact, the data in public domain reveals that there are other publishers in the market from whom such subscription can be done. Hence, GIST does not appear to be dominant in the relevant market and, consequently, the question of abuse of dominance does not arise.
